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.

Giving up ...

Well, almost a year after the last entry … it seems like if another person had written those thoughts.

The thing is … I couldn’t finish that list even if I tried it hard. I’ve changed my whole view of life and the list as well has no sense now.

I invite others to inquire into what means, in a deep sense, to make such list.

Almost done

I’m about to become into an Engineer and to do so, I wrote a book (a thesis). It has 3 different spelling reviews, all of them made by me, following these series of advices given by people who had written other specialized books. However, I still have more to learn before turning it into a done goal.
