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.

Perfume

This is so unlike me but I just spent $45 on perfume. Not much to some people but for me- a large act of both wildness and being succulent. I’ve been wanting perfume for, say 6 mos. Well, I should elaborate and say “a refill of my favorite perfume and some new stuff”... because I love perfume.

Baby steps… baby steps.



Stop Waiting!

I need to learn that I don’t need to save the good tea for “a more trying day” ; I need to stop saving my favorite bath salts for another time. I need to start doing things impulsively instead of putting them off for a more “appropriate” time- like sex, writing, and dancing out in the warm summer rain.

I tend to plan things out or have a routine. While it makes me feel safe, it also makes me feel stale sometimes. I need to be more wild, even if it’s only in one or two things. I’m not known as a wild person but then I don’t care what others think about me so much any more.

I need a little wildness…
