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.

Another goal ...

.. for which I must thank a 43T-er: thank you, Goodwolve :) (I have no cheers available at present but I’ll remember later when I do have some, that one belongs to you.)

Once again, this is something I do all the time. But sometimes it can appear to others that I’m being judgmental (or just plain nosey!).

Essentially, my desire is to see through the other’s eyes: to see what they see, to understand their world view; their motivations; their passions. It is driven by curiosity and a desire to accept others for what they are – and to help, support or encourage if that is what they want.

Herein lies the reminder to myself: help, support or encouragement can be offered because that is what someone wants, but not because I want to offer it or because I think that they need it

Saraband has gotten 79 cheers on this goal.


I want to:
