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.

TV On Occasion

Canceling the cable was the main step.

Even though I get a few channels with rabbit ears I am not glued to the television as much and it feels great. There are ways around that like catching shows on line. That’s not too bad either.

The hardest part was letting go of my soaps. I had watched since birth. It’s not been hard at all. Any day I am home during the week, all I have to do is turn on the tube and I can catch up in 15 minutes. It’s great.

Let go the TV. It’s so worth it.

live in New York City
New York, Here I come.

I was born in New York. I left at the age of 10, not by choice. Ever since that time I wanted to move back. It’s something I have spoken about many times.

Well I’m doing it. My lease was near its end and so I took the plunge. I gave my letter of resignation to my job and I gave my notice to not renew at my complex.

I feel greaaaaat! I am selling everything and only taking basics. Just me, my car and a trailer filled with my life.

I am going to miss FL but NY is where my heart has always been at.

So much to do and handle. All I am doing is taking it one thing at a time. It seems to be working thus far.

I don’t have a job yet but I don’t have any worries there. I know with my experience I will be just fine.

And, a family member has generously opened their home to me for a few months until I land on my feet.

God is great. Thank you. He’s opening doors and windows for me left and right. I know this is right for me. I know this is the right thing.

I am set to arrive 10.1.08

Wish me luck!
