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.

More snow... please!!

Is it just me, or have the last couple of winters seen a dramatic decrease in snow. This goal is uber-challenging since we have not had much snow.
I am however taking off this weekend with my gear, just in case the temp dips and it snows.

Joined a Wine Club

Canadians have the opportunity to join the Opimian Society The first dinner/tasting is this weekend. I was overwhelmed by the amount of reading material provided to a new member, but I suppose over time I will be able to really learn from it.

More Nursing School

So it has been a few months shy of 3 years that I have updated this goal. Since then I have completed the College level of Nursing Diploma and now am working toward my University degree in Nursing.
This program will take me close to 5 years to complete part time and is online. Online degree, scary thought.. especially as it is so easy to get distracted on a site like this. But I’m still learning…
