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.

Three weeks and counting...

I recently completed a 4-week PMP exam prep course which earned me 35 contact hours. This weekend, I will finish my application and I hope to take the exam in late September under the new format.

What better way to spend part of the holiday weekend than studying.

Three years in the making

It’s been much too long since I updated my progress on this goal… for I am now an MBA graduate! :) Yes, that’s right. After 3+ years of PT study I completed my degree and can begin to enjoy a less stressful life.

The education was well worth the effort and tuition. I am smarter and more confident than I was before. I hope that this degree will open the door to new career opportunities.

Also, I’ve decided that at the age of 35, the MBA will very likely be my one and only graduate degree. I would like to now look forward to marrying the right woman and starting a family. :)

Two weeks (four class meetings) remain

On a sunny Sunday afternoon, I am catching up on my readings and will try to leap ahead. Chapters 10 & 11 – complete. Need to circle back for Chapters 8 & 9. Then, yes, you guessed it, chapters 12 & 13. I’m enjoying the sense of accomplishment with each checkmark I can make in the syllabus.
