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.

She Drive's Me Crazy--Fine Young Cannibals

I can’t stop the way I feel
Things you do don’t seem real

Tell me what you’ve got in mind
‘Cause we’re runnin’ out of time
Won’t you ever set me free
This waiting round is killing me

She drives me crazy
Like no one else
She drives me crazy
I can’t help myself

I can’t get any rest
People say I’m obsessed
Everything you say is lies
But to me there’s no surprise
What I had for you was true
Things go wrong, they always do

She drives me crazy
Like no one else
She drives me crazy
I can’t help myself

I won’t make it on my own
No one likes to be alone

She drives me crazy
Like no one else
She drives me crazy
I can’t help myself

Uh huh huh

She drives me crazy
Like no one else
She drives me crazy
I can’t help myself

Uh huh huh

She drives me crazy
Like no one else
She drives me crazy
I can’t help myself

I like what my pastor said on Sunday

about when Jesus was in the wilderness. While he was there he got what he needed to go out and do more miracles. All week I’ve been thinking about how it is okay to be in the wilderness. It’s okay to spend time by myself to gain strength and what I need to be okay. This is how I can give more of myself to the world. Most of the time I’m in available mode. So this week I’ve taken time out.
