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.

On with life

My mom passed away on June 2, 2008 at 3:40 am. I really miss her, but I know she isn’t in pain. I was with her and able to say goodbye, tell her that I love her. I know she is always visiting me and watching over me.

drink more water
I've found a solution

I have a QuikTrip cup with a straw (32 oz). I fill it up when I get to work everyday and just drink it. When it has a straw I’m more prone to drink it then when it’s a water bottle or a cup. So I’m up to about 96 oz just while I’m at work, plus whatever I drink at school and at home. It’s amazing how that works. And I feel so much better too!

Awesome day

So I just had this day with Dakota, the horse I ride. We just connected. I mean, we really get each other, but yesterday was just awesome. He did what I asked everytime, and I barely had to give a cue. It was just so awesome. I think next weekend I’m going to try riding him in an english saddle.
