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.

open a daycare (read all 2 entries…)

This seems to be more difficult than I thought. Found out that in order to own & direct a daycare center here in my state you have to have at least 12 months working in a daycare center & I have none but I enjoy working w/kids. I have always had a big interest in working w/kids. I’ve always had a lot of kids to stay at my home. I not going to give up on this goal & will find a way to do this.

Proud of myself

These past couple of weeks haven’t been bad for me. I don’t go as regular as I use too nor do I spend as much. For one, I don’t have as much to spend so I guess that’s good too. It’s been a week today since the last time I went & I only went then b/c my grandmother wanted me to take her & she gave me money to play. Once I got my machine up to the amount my grandmother had given me I cashed it out & gave her money back & I had only spent $10 of what she had given me to win all of the money she had given. After I had won enough for me to make it through the week I stopped gambling, plus it seem like every machine I was playing was taking. So I think I played it smart by sitting just watching my grandmother enjoy herself. Plus my grandmother end up not losing but only winning an extra $2 but she was grateful that she didn’t lose anything & had a good time. Not for sure if I’ll make any time this weekend b/c I’m very busy & money is tight.

Not Good but still a believer

I haven’t been doing as well as I planned but I’m not giving up b/c I will not be defeated by the devil. I did not go to church on Easter Sunday & have no excuse. I did however go the Saturday before & really enjoyed what I learned. I’m not for sure if I’ll be able to make it this Sunday b/c I’m so busy this weekend. However, I need to stop making excuses & get off my lazy behind & go give praises to my father who blesses me daily. I know w/o him I would be nothing nor have nothing. I have not lost the faith & know that I should be studying his word on a daily basis b/c it’s well needed, especially w/my struggles. I know he’s going to bring me through it all. Amen!
