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.

Licorice and Sloe

Went to a wonderful tea shop in Newburyport, MA this past weekend. I had a Gyokuru green tea that I really enjoyed. This summer is going to be about any teas that have pineapple in them.

Movin On up

About 2 weeks ago I was finally offered a full time position with a company I truly love. I’ve been temping there since September and stepped up my hard work in the past few months. It went noticed and the offer has come in- doubling my salary actually!

Apparently the company has some matching available. It’s going to be one of the first things I do on the 3rd- my first official day.

Keep a journal
Every second valuable

If somehow you’re convinced that journaling is not worth it, at least one volume of Anais Nin’s Diary. I felt so complete when I finished the book last night- and when I was done I opened up my journal and wrote about 8 pages. Yesterday alone I did about 12. I work full time and still have obligations but if you make something a priority, it is a welcome distraction. Every word I’ve put in my journal has been worth it.
