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.

Perfect my sonnet.

The Fading of Winter

Walk slow with me towards our winters release;
Lifes odyssey will in eternal hope
Make true the pass of Us ‘Neath lovers skies in peace;
Yet hearts destined for Heavens elope,
Shall dance through the daffodils of springs rebirth
And traverse the angry but ‘oft serene rivers,
Ease in time to shy streams with summer’s sunny flirt
With hot days to conjure winter shivers.
As autumn leaves in dreamscape flurry,
In too short a time blow from trees and land
On snowy banks in my ancient memory, I hurry,
To catch the skeletal leaf of youth in my hand.

You’re my eternal summer and the fire in my heart;
But spring and summer one day have to part.

Quit my job, Travel around America for 3 months and come home to start fresh
Really want to make the most of my life

My dream travel is to travel around America for 3 months – New York, Cape Cod, Boston, The Grand canyon, Niagara falls,Montana, San Francisco, Memphis, New Orleans, Salem, Los Angeles, Las Vegas, but to name a few. I want to pack in my job and start fresh when I get back from travelling doing something I love like Interior Design [which is a goal] and Gardening and Landscaping. I hope I can reach that goal.
