Dear 43 Things Users,

10 years after introducing 43 Things to the world, we have decided we have met our last goal: completing the incredible experience that has been 43 Things. Please join us in giving one last cheer to all the folks who have shared their goals with the world, as well as all the people who have worked at The Robot Co-op to build this incredible website. We won a Webby Award, published a book, and brought happiness to a lot of people.

Starting today, 43 Things users can export their goals and entries from the site. Starting August 15, we will make the site “read only”. 43 Things users will still be able to view the site and export their content, but we won’t be taking any new content from users. We hope to leave the site up for folks to see and download their content until the end of the year. Ending on New Year’s Eve takes us full circle.

It has been a long ride (one of our original goals was to "build a company that lasts at least 2 years” - we beat that one!) While we wish the site could live on, it has suffered from a number of challenges - changes in how people use the site, the advertising industry, and how search engines view the site. We wish the outcome was different – but we’ve always been realistic about when our goals are met and when they aren't.

As of today, you will be able to download your goals and entries. See more about that on the FAQ page. Thanks for 10 great years of goal-setting and achieving.

- The Robots.

Seems like this has been with me for so long…glad to have a feeling of completion but in some way it feels lonely too.

Very happy and relieved. Will wait to see in writing that I’m finished, like when I do finish paying the tuition bill.

Communicating, working and faxing!

Sent a 14 page fax off to the dept dean today. Working in a high school library tomorrow. Asked for the day off and it was approved.

Working, working. Feels great.

Friday December 9th

Spending time in a former colleague’s nice high school library was wonderful, refreshing, awesome! So glad she’s doing well.

Have collected a good amount of paperwork that counts toward this goal. Need to assemble this and get it on the way Monday.

November action

Communicating, writing, compartmentalizating. Working…it feels great to rattle this cage…

First step, done. Registered online for field hours.

The journey of 1000 miles is completed by taking the last few steps. Keep going, just keep going!
