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.

Redux: 2010

I did this a couple of years ago and remember really enjoying it. I’ve had conversations recently with friends about accepting and giving compliments – people struggle with both, and I get that. I can’t always make people take them, but at least I can give them, right?



Hooray!

Definately worth doing. It was such a delight to make people a little happier, and it actually made me calmer. :) Double bonus.



DAYS TWENTY SEVEN, EIGHT AND NINE, plus the all important DAY THIRTY.

Boxing day, the 26th and the 27th. Oh my. I absolutely cannot remember what I did on these days. Boxing day my sister and her boyfriend came over for food. I think. The day after we all went to hers where I complimented her boyfriends aunt on her knitting, and the day after that I think I just slept. Oops.

I’ve been trying hard to keep up with this goal but I haven’t seen very many people in the past few days so it’s been a little hard to acomplish. I’ve done very well overall tho, so I’m not going to beat myself up about it too much :)

Today I complimented Martin, saying that I liked it when he was at work because it made it more fun :) and that’s it. goal completed!

DAY TWENTY SIX

Christmas Day. I wrote on my uncles gift tag “you are an inspiration”, and I think he was pleased. We don’t always get on, but he’s incredibly clever and determined, so I thought it’d be nice to let him know that I do care, once in a while. heh.

DAYS TWENTY FOUR AND TWENTY FIVE

Yesterday I complimented a random staff nurse on her fairy wings, hehe. Too cute.

Today I complimented Tessa, Kate and Kat all in one sitting, heh. Kate on her bracelet, Tessa on her top and Kat on her necklace. It was so lovely to catch up with the girls again, I’ve really missed the being around.

Tonight I complimented Amy (again) and Jeff. Christmas cheer everyone!

I don’t think I complimented anyone today unfortunately. Still, for the most part the goal is going well :)

Today I told Roland that he was cute, and that his son was adorable, and I also complimented a random shoppers necklace :)
