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.

Read the entire Bible (read all 4 entries…)
One year

I’m now onto year two of my three-year plan to read through the entire Bible, so I guess I’m one-third of the way done. So far I’v read:

Levit, Num, Deut, Judges, Ruth, 1&2 Sam, 1&2 Kings, Job, Psalms (part), Isaiah (part), Micah, Mark, John, 2 Cor (part), Eph, 1&2 Tim, Titus, Hebr, and 1 Peter.

It’s been awesome!

find a church home (read all 2 entries…)

And it’s right around the corner. I’ve been going for a few months now and am now feeling confident that this is a community that I want to be a part of.

talk to my dad more
a start...

Of course I can’t just check this one off as completely done, but I made an intentional effort to increase my communication with my dad by suggesting that we get together for breakfast weekly. This morning was our first said breakfast. There were definitely some times of extended silence, but I think we’re getting somewhere. I’m looking forward to seeing where things will go with us as we continue to get together on a weekly basis.
