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.

My Action List

My definition of an action list is a list of things you’ve always wanted to do but have never done for whatever reason. I think if you want to be bold, you need to make an action list. You need to think of the things that will make you bold. These are the things that I want to do.

1. Go skydiving-Boo yah!

2. Play varsity tennis at my high school

3. Run a 10k (maybe even more)

4. Make a difference in someone’s life.

It’s short but it’s a start. Time for me to start being bold!

The Quest of Time

I’m writing a story called the Quest of time. It’s about a kid named Allen Meller that figures out he’s half monster and goes to a camp for training just in case some monsters come to attack them. Since Allen does so good at camp he’s been asked to go on a Quest to stop Slicer the evil monster from ruling the world.
