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.

Worky Worky

The Macromedia daily grind is improving. I have a good work load now and I am finishing projects. However I am working on a number of projects that are very open ended and that makes me edgy. I have this constant feeling that I am slacking off when in fact I am doing what I am supposed to. I just have to take on more tasks without having to be asked first. I will be back in the drivers seat in no time.

43 Things Begins with work

Work has been a real challenge for me lately. This is not becuase the work load is heavy or because I don’t have enough time, but because I am lazy. I have spent months doing little more than surfing the web and maintaining the minimum workload required to stay employed. This has to stop now. It is understandable that I have been depressed and less than motivated, but it is time for me to get on the $%#*ing ball and start earing my pay.

Less Warcraft, more Flash Player.
