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.

Become Financially Independent
On the path of Financial Independence =)

First of all, I wanna thank My Lord for this answered prayer. I remember praying at the beginning of Jan 07 for an opportunity to truly make a difference. The answer to this prayer came almost about a year later in Dec 07. And all I can say, is that I never could’ve envisioned a possibility like this with what I prayed for, which brings me to a passage of scripture in Ephesians 3:20 “Now to Him who is able to do exceedingly abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that works in us,”

I truly feel as if I found a hidden treasure with the knowledge that has been so kindly bestowed to me by My Lord. Referring to Proverbs 8:11 ‘For wisdom is better than rubies, And all the things one may desire cannot be compared with her’

I’m just thankful to have been there at the right place and at the right time. Proverbs 16:9 ‘A man’s heart plans his way, But the Lord directs his steps.’

I can’t help but be grateful for what I’ve been blessed with. Rejoice Always!!!

So You Think You Can Dance

After having the opportunity to watch all of this season along with Season 3 of SYTYCD, my eyes have truly been opened as to the scope of what dance can be. It’s absolutely amazing to have witnessed such beautiful dance in all areas, especially when you have wonderful dancers paired with talented choreographers. I instantly became a fan of Mia Michaels, along with Tabitha and Napolean…the routines for ‘No Air’ and ‘Bleeding Love’ were incredible.

travel to a deserted island and live there
LOST castaway style

I dig the whole island life. As long as there’s a waterfall, some hot springs….I would design my own bungalow over the water 100s of feet from the shore.
