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.

Remain close to my children
Four unique souls

I am blessed with four unique souls the Creator has lent to me as my children. Through raising them, I have learned sooo much and become a better, more tolerant and patient person. The most important lesson I have learned is how little I really know and understand in the natural and spiritual world.

I even had the pleasure of homeschooling each of them at one time or other. Learning together with family is so basic. Is not the family the first and most important teacher?

These four souls have made the biggest impact on me as a person. They awakened in me an awareness of both the incredible opportunities and the challenging limitations of my own humanity, and that of others.

I enjoy four unique relationships with four very distinctive and impressive people I call my sons and daughter. I hope to remain close with them beyond forever.

experience skydiving again
Skydiving in mid-life

I once tried skydiving as a very young woman. I think I would love to be courageous enough to throw caution to the wind and enjoy that experience again. With more life under my belt, I think I could savor it all the more.
