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.

Take care of my body.
my body

my body has taken it’s toll with the heat and sun exposure in Iraq, thankfully, I don’t smoke and rarely drink, so that’s a plus, but after having my kids I rarely have time for myself, but no more, this year I will set aside atleast one hour for myself and just for me to take care of my body, i’m not getting any younger so here it goes…

live instead of exist

i’ve noticed that we get so attached to computers or technology now a days that we literally don’t stop and smell the roses, I need to not be on the internet all the time, maybe only after the kids go to sleep, but I need to enjoy life because I only have one, need to get this one life of mine on track and quit taking it for granted, plus the most important things in life are free, love, family, laughter and working with on our passions, with that said, let 2012 be a great year :)

be a better mother
needing so much improvement in this

where to begin is the question, when I had my son I was 21, loved and still love my child to death, but once I deployed to Iraq for 16 months something changed, I left my baby with my husband and came back to a toddler that was in his terrible two’s, he didn’t know who I was or why I was with him, it’s been hard ever since, he’s now 5 we’ve made progress but I don’t know if it’s me or him, damn you stupid deployment!!! anywho, I need to be more patient with both my son and daughter, stop the yelling, and do fun things with them, they’re growing so fast and soon they’ll become teenagers… I wish time would stay still for a second…
