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.

What is Good Sleep???

It is now 4:48am and I have been up all day! Working and trying to do business on the side is a killer! I hope it doesn’t catch up with me one day in the form of something bad, don’t want to say what cause I don’t want to put that out in the universe!

Will try to sleep 5 hours tonight…

Maybe a chapter a night...

Ok, so I need to find the time to read more. Maybe if I can come unglued from the computer, I would have more time! So many books…so little time!

sell one million copies of my gourmet cookbook
I Love to Cook!

Yes I love to cook! I’ve compiled over a hundred recipes and created five course meal menus out of them for gourmet entertaining at home. It’s a hit so far, but would love to reach my goal….some year!
