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.

Think about your life!

Listen Up! None of us are going to be on our deathbed saying we wished we had put more hours into our work! Life if too short and death is no party for sure…(watching my dad die before my eyes…..terrible) Just remember you don’t want to be 65 or 85 or whatever and find youself saying “I wish I had of done ___ (you fill in the blank). I have been following or at least trying to follow suggestions from a book entitled “How to Live Charmed Life” by Victoria Moran…’s a way cool book…......whatever it is you think you want to do…well try to do it okay? Whether it’s crewing up for a hot air balloon, being a deejay. taking better photos, being an extra, whatever your dream go for it (cliched, I know, but true!) I have pursued dreams and have many more to fulfilled and along the way I’ve even sowed some wild oats-no regrets-no regrets at all….I just have to remind my self to keep re-evaluating my dreams and deciding where I want life to take me!

ACL is great

I obtained my BS in RTF from the College of Communication at UT. While a student there, I was literally in the building or nearby when tickets would be given out and so I managed to attend several times….super experience!
