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.

It's hard to know when to consider this done,

as it’s good to always “keep going”, but I’ll consider this done and replace this goal with more specific goals that can easily and eventually be reached. Until then, I will keep going ‘til I can’t go no mo.

This goal currently entails

1. finishing up clinic shift (12 hours left)
2. Getting everything together to take board exams
3. Take board exams
4. Apply for license

Now that I'm back

I’ve been in sort of a daze. There are some self improvement things I’ve always wanted to do, and I’d like to do them in 21 day increments. To be on the safe side, though, I’ll just do these until the end of November and then recommit for December. I would like to keep this list short (3 things) for simplicity’s sake. And they are:

1. Wear my retainer each night
2. Make my bed each morning
3. Go to as many clinic shifts as I can

Simple enough.

Lisa has gotten 15 cheers on this goal.


I want to:
