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.

Well i did another sketch of an Oak Tree last night, its a start to the grounding prosses. Maybe i’ll scan it and put it on my profile. Will have to gather some confidence first though. lol



HAHA

This goal made me giggle as the other week i bought some sketch pads and some charchol. I like to doodle trees as it helps to ground me, soooooo i thought if i bought the above i could sketch properly and save them for my kids. Well up to date i’ve only done one tree and haven’t picked the pad up since, i don’t even doodle anymore. Its a cofidence thing with me as i don’t think im any good at drawing. When i sketched my tree i kept telling myself “theres no such thing as perfection” when i finished it i thought “damn thats pretty perfect” perhaps i should keep telling myself theres no such thing as perfection with alot of things in my life, maybe then (in my eyes atleast) they may turn out to be pretty perfect. lol
Mmmmmm me thinks i have perfection issues. lol
