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.

When I first go my cell phone I started texting Toe with one line of the prolog. In return whe would reply with the next line.



Meet someone new every week
Jeremy

Today, I met Jeremy at the bookstore while signing up for shifts. He was very sweet and introduced himself. After I while I figured he was a rookie, and kind of backed away after I said I worked there before.



speak so they will listen

I have a tough time moving my lips much when I speak. I had braces for many years and learned to talk so that my lips covered my braces. Also, I’m from the Rocky Mountain states in the US, with soft-spoken parents from the west coast.

I’ve noticed I’ve started to interject before my conversation partner finishes speaking. This is fine for some conversational styles, but some people think its very rude. Usually if I wait for them to complete the idea, somebody else jumps in. Timing is difficult. This goal may never leave my list!
