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.

June Bootcamp 2012: Catching Up and Forging Ahead (read all 6 entries…)
Rounding out the month

As the eve of July approaches, I find myself reflecting back on this month and feeling like it went by way too fast. Did I do everything I needed to do? Did I see the friends I wanted to see? Did I live every day with as much integrity as if it was going to be my last? You know, probably not. There were days I just didn’t do anything all day; I stayed home, read, when I could have been productive… but that’s okay. If I was meant to have a lazy day be my last day, then that’s a pretty awesome way to go in my opinion =D

Enough of the morbidity though, haha. I’m really excited to see what next month’s goal is. This goal has really helped me to stay alert of what I need to do, and also helped me to consistently update my life. Which all you guys probably don’t want to hear, but it’s nice when I read someone going through a similar situation as I am. It helps me focus that much more.

Catching Up; June Recap: If I were to look at this month, I think my grandfather’s memorial really hit home. I saw my family, had a sense of finality about my grandfather’s death, and saw just how far we came in one year. It was very cool how over his death… my family became that much closer with my grandmother; it’s funny how that happens. I got caught up with some friends I literally have not spent time with in over a year. It was a good month. And we still have six more days left of it, which is totally a blessing in itself.

Forging Ahead: Who knows what the next six days have to offer? And who knows about July? All I can say is that I’m excited for the new challenge!
