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.

13. unlucky for some!

I love going to look at these animals, although they look so big & the horns look scary they are such gentle creatures & even shy away when you talk to them (maybe we all would if complete strangers came to look & us!)

Back to basics

Went to Mum & Dads on days off this week for a break. Managed to get a new lease of life there. Never stopped was busy & got plenty of fresh air. Didn’t stay in bed as didn’t have the opportunity but loved my time. they live in the country which I suppose makes all the difference & they have a large garden which I always spend alot of time in. Only down side is I get nothing done at home.May be that’s why I went, another distraction technique

10. I love seeing the heather on the moors in bloom

It’s a joy to behold as usually the moors are desolate places, wide expanses with not much happening. The memorable things are of negative images etc. The heather makes it into a wonderful place.

Go to Ireland
When Irish eyes are smiling

I have family in Ireland & have spent many holidays there. There is something for everyone. Some places it’s like stepping back in time, others are very cosmopolitian it depends what you want as to were you should go. I recommend a bit of both

When one of my learners tells me off

It means they are actually listening to what I have told them & giving me a taste of my own medicine e.g. I had my hair down for work (usually up) a learner pointed out that I ‘looked like I had been dragged out of a hedge backwards’ The week before we had been working on personal appearances & judging books by the covers etc.I’m lucky to be a part of someone who is making a difference to their world & journey towards independence
