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.

Everyone Has Goals...Just Be Sensitive To Them and Yours Will Be Achieved

In my role as Director of Operations for one of North America’s leading fashion retailers I am constantly faced with the need to bring the best quality talent to my business.

I’m currently charged with opening up new frontiers in Western Canada and at the sacrifice of my family have been traveling since July opening up new stores that have needed lots of new people. My luck has recently increased and I believe it’s because I have listened to the little man that lives inside my head where choosing these people are concerned.

Tonight after reading my friend Jamie’s commentaries I received two phone calls from two excellent people from a remote area of Birtish Columbia, where incidentally I am opening my next store and previously I have had nothing but roadblocks in trying to get my staff together for this location that opens at the end of October.

It’s rather revolutionary when you examine the outcome of being open, and listening and watching, and anticipating the evolution of your personal goals. Everyone has goals, leaving yourself open to listening to them and embracing them can have a tremendous impact on those of your own.

It sends shivers down my spine to think that I have manufactured these events, and that they were first of all inspired by my friend Jamie who lives in Ottawa whom I have not seen since November 2004 in Chicago at the Packaging Show.
