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.

Reading an email from a friend that was negative and self-pitying, I felt compassion rather than anger. She said that I was “annoyed” with her, and I responded that the feeling was “frustration.”

Relaxing on summer break, guilt-free!

Feeling a sense of accomplishment as I declutter the guest room.

Having a window air-conditioner on this hot, hot day.

For my dogs, who love me unconditionally!

Grateful for a fairly easy workday. Students were busy with end of the year activities, so I had time between the ones who did show up to finish some paperwork.

Grateful for my parents who gave me a gold and diamond ring that my dad gave my mom years ago. They wanted to honor my 60th birthday, and it was a very touching gift. I finally brought the ring to a jewelery store to be sized today.

Grateful to make it through Pilates tonight. With this new eating plan, calories are more restricted, and I really felt the loss of energy, but I made it!

I am grateful that I decided to stay home today. Breathing is strained, too much coughing and not enough sleep. This day I will rest!

I am so grateful for this Friday – it went smoothly, it’s the end of another work week, and I have the weekend to rest and recover!

My sons are both available for dinner tomorrow night.

The kids in the special day class shared things they like about each other. It was a positive love fest!

I enjoyed watching and talking about the progress my students are making.

Grateful that the fashion show and tea went well, and that I did fine with modeling – no falls!

When I started feeling sick, I excused myself and went home. Good thing, because I really was sick.

Taking today off, resting, reading, getting well.

Not able to go to dinner with son #2, but he understood and we will reschedule. I love my easy-going sons!

MRI is tomorrow morning, and I do not feel nervous. Thank you!

My friend and colleague Michelle made it through breast cancer surgery. Here’s to complete healing!

Checking things off my list at work.

My mom called to check up on me. I was able to tell her the date for the MRI. I’m feeling better about it.

Trying on clothes after work for the fashion show on Saturday. I had fun and felt girly!

A teacher friend confided in me about her son telling her he is gay. We had a good talk and a good cry, and she felt safe talking to me.
