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.

learn to use photoshop
I'm taking online classes and the next class absolutely requires Photoshop

I have no clue how to use it and it’s stressing me out thinking about trying to do assignments not knowing how to use the program. I’m going to try and buy a book on Ps and take every tutorial I can to learn how to use it.

find at least one thing each day that makes me happy and record it everyday for a year (read all 2 entries…)
My happy thought for 3/15/11

Slathering Jergens Ultra Healing lotion all over my dry skin is one thing I do to make myself feel pampered and relaxed. I know it’s a silly thing but it really makes me feel better and it doesn’t wreck my budget. I love the way my skin feels after the lotion soaks in. That’s my happy thought for the day. I think I’ll grab my bottle of Jergens right now :)

Lose Weight and Get Healthy
I want to live long enough to see my dreams come true

I have plans and goals for the future and I am actively working on achieving them. One thing is always on my mind though and that is the fact that I don’t want to die prematurely. I am trying to follow a low carb diet but because of my lifestyle (long haul trucking), I am not able to get enough exercise. Even when I was at home, I asked my husband for a gym membership and he said we couldn’t afford it. When I get home, I have to start walking at the high school. There are some decisions that need to be made to better position myself to move forward. Getting out of trucking would be better for my health but that’s the only way I have of making money. Unless I get hired at the school district to drive school bus, I may have to go back to driving and just do the best I can at finding ways to exercise and eat right (low carb).
