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.

Witness a miracle

I’m praying hard for a miracle right now. I’ve read so many spiritual books about how the power of prayer and positive thought can actually change situations for the better and it always sounds so simple and easy to do when you’ve got nothing to worry about in your life. Then BANG something terrible happens and it’s not so easy to find these positive thoughts. So I’m praying like I’ve never prayed before.

be an artist (read all 4 entries…)

Have now reduced my working week so I can dedicate more time to being an ‘artist’. I do a set number of hours in the studio each day and really try to stick to this otherwise I would get distracted and end up doing other stuff, like housework – eek!

Sold a painting today...

I know, it’s just so exciting! Isn’t it just an amazing feeling when someone actually likes your stuff enough to want to pay money for it! It was a just a very quick pen & ink dawing I did many years ago and it was gathering dust at the back of my portfolio but now it has a proper mount and backing and I’ve added my name (had a lot of practice just getting the signature right!). The hardest part has been putting a price on it. I mean how do you put a price on your own work?
