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.

So, I asked for the inforation to be sent to me for this, but instead all they would do was call me three times a day every day and try to get me to “talk to a counselor” about what I wanted to do etc…

I explained to the lady on the phone that if that’s what I’d wanted, I would have called them. All I wanted was for them to send me a brochure in the mail… but apparently that’s impossible unless I’ll talk to them about my hopes and dreams!

So, I basically told her to lose my number and that she totally turned me off to the whole idea of attending their school.

What did I learn from all this??? Never give a phone number if you don’t want to called constantly!!!


Step 1 Completed!

I have just finished completing a request for information from a school near my home.
I feel like I’ve at least started something.
We’ll see.

I have always wanted to do this.

For as long as I can remember, I have always said that I wanted to be a masseuse… which is actually quite strange considering I wont let anyone even come close to giving me a massage!
Still, I do enjoy giving them, and every time I do, I get told I should do it professionally.
At least I know I have something to work with!
