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.

a new philosophy?

except for the making out with starman part, of course.

topical article/blog entry thingie

he pretty much states the obvious, but if i really paid attention to those things on a regular basis, i would be interested to see how i felt.

right now, i feel like existing is about all i can muster

i don’t know, maybe i’m completely wrong about that, i’m feeling a little discombobulated right now. crap, if i move this over, i’m just going to end up going through the motions, worrying about things like money, etc. that’s it, i’ve made up my mind. this needs to be shelved for now until i can get my act together.

thanks, toddschoonover!

i went to high school with a todd schnoonover, but it wasn’t you. what a small world. anyway, this one is going to be tough because i’m seriously mired in the minutiae these days. i’m tired of winter, ready for spring, ready to get back outside, and tired of thinking about money all the time, but i fear that’s just where i am right now and i’m going to have to shelve this goal until i can re-focus.

make the most of every moment

do what i want to do when i want, whatever that may be, and within reason, of course :)
