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.

I love the sky

I think I notice the sky fairly often. I’m not sure why or how I learned to do this, but it’s something I check out on a regular basis. I love the different ways the clouds look and the different shades of blue one can see if one really takes time to notice the differences.

When I was in the highlands of Peru I was amazed at the clarity of the air and how deep blue the sky was. I also loved the clouds on the horizon when I was at Sandoval Lake in the Amazon Basin (also in Peru.)

The attached picture is the sky above Cuzco from the central plaza.
I suppose it’s really the stars one looks at when noticing the sky at night, but I love looking up when it’s dark as well. I feel very connected to the universe. Knowing that every atom in my body originated somewhere else in the universe makes it all the more special when I look into the night sky.


I want to:
