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.

Jessica Simpson - When You Told Me You Loved Me

Once
Doesn’t mean anything to me
Come
Show me the meaning of complete
Where
Did our love go wrong
Once we were so strong
How can I go on?

When you told me you loved me
Did you know it would take me the rest of my life
to get over the feeling of knowing
a dream didn’t turn out right
When you let me believe that you weren’t complete
without me by your side
How could I know
That you would go
That you would run
Baby, I thought you were the one

Why
Can’t I just leave it all behind
I
Felt passion so bright that I was blind
Then
Something made me weak
Talking in my sleep
Baby, I’m in so deep and you know I believed

When you told me you loved me
Did you know it would take me the rest of my life
to get over the feeling of knowing
a dream didn’t turn out right
When you let me believe that you weren’t complete
without me by your side
How could I know
That you would go
That you would run
Baby, I thought you were the one

Your lips
Your face
Something that time just can’t erase
My heart
Could break
All over again

When you told me you loved me
Did you know it would take me the rest of my life
to get over the feeling of knowing
a dream didn’t turn out right
When you let me believe that you weren’t complete
without me by your side
How could I know
That you would go
That you would run
Baby, I thought you were the one

Awhile ago...

I went to a rum tasting event, it was interesting.



Read more books (read all 38 entries…)
hmm

Since I started reading the book I’m supposed to be reading I haven’t read hardly any of it. I guess I just need to get into the habit of it (hadn’t read a book for quite a long time), especially reading before trying to sleep maybe. Have been reading some magazines recently though.

Just writing this here as a reminder to start reading it properly!



post random questions daily and see if anyone plays with me and answers them :) (read all 15 entries…)
Pizza

I love pizza, but I eat it without cheese mostly. Anyone else do this?

I’m just not a massive fan of cheese, even though I love everything else about pizza. I know some people would be amazed at this, the people who have specifically CHEESE pizza for example, and I do sometimes eat the cheese if it’s on it (though not always) but I don’t ask for extra and mostly ask for none (when given the choice). I can’t be the only one though right?

stop procrastinating (read all 23 entries…)
Easier said than done

This goal is obviously easier said than done!

Anyway; I read this article (it was right, I had put off reading it, but now I have read it). A lot of it makes sense.

Another thought I had regarding ‘stop procrastinating’, was… playing a video game I’ve been addicted to recently as a reward for getting something done.

This also seems useful. Now to implement what I’ve read!
