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.

do 100 random acts of kindness

I came across this site and was really inspired by the idea. Everyday we are presented with opportunities to commit an act of kindness. But how often do we take the opportunity? Most of the time we’re too busy, too distracted, or (let’s admit it) too lazy to act.

So why wait for the opportunity when you can create the opportunity? My goal is to do at least 100 of the random acts of kindness on this link and other RAOK links. And I think the underlying (even more important) goal is to create a ripple effect and hopefully get others to “pay it forward”. :)

B = Biku

Went to Bali in September and ate at this really awesome cafe in Seminyak. It’s casual but quirky and the food is unbelievable! A lot of natural, organic foods that taste amazing. Had the cucumber soup, the freshest salad I’ve ever had, and a chocolate dessert to die for! If I lived in Bali I would go there every day.
