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.

Challenge myself this winter! (read all 6 entries…)

Alright, I haven’t finished a single book. However, I am reading three rather thick volumes at once (String of Pearls, Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, and Lolita) and making progress. All of these books are also on my to read list, so I won’t beat myself up too much.

Signed up for driver’s ed (wasn’t on this list, but it’s accomplished nonetheless).

Seeing Sweeney next week (!).

I’ll count the meditation item as complete since I appear to have fallen into a pattern.

Not continuations
1. Read at least 12 books, including Lolita (for God’s sake).
2. Donate 2500 grains of rice to freerice.com
3. Consider what to include in my “This I Believe Essay.”
4. See Sweeney Todd live (3/1/08 =])
5. Practice driving an average of 50 minutes a week (not difficult).
6. Look into the price of renting a cello.



Start meditating
I'm finally meditating every Sunday night

And I like it. So I’ll count this done.



take drivers ed
I'm signed up!

For classes starting 5 April. So I’ll count this done, even though it is technically not.

Sing at least one karaoke song (in front of people)

Well, it wasn’t exactly karaoke, but I sang “The Worst Pies in London” and “Wait” (both from Sweeney Todd) with an accompaniment CD for my family. Works for me.

The End

Have read three books since last update.

Up to 37500 grains of rice.

Completed what was once number six again.

Am finally re-reading Lolita.

Distributed resumés/applied places this week, which is funny to think of, since I wasn’t actively intended to fulfill number eight, but I guess I have.

And guess what? I actually meditated today. I think Sunday would be the appropriate day for meditation if it’s only to be once a week. So I’ll try to do likewise next Sunday.

So, updated list:

Not continuations
1. Read at least 12 books, including Lolita (for God’s sake).
2. Donate 12500 grains of rice to freerice.com
3. Consider what to include in my “This I Believe Essay.”
4. See Sweeney Todd live (3/1/08 =])
5. Practice driving an average of 50 minutes a week (not difficult).
6. Make time to meditate at least once a week.
7. Look into the price of renting a cello.
