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.

get out of my comfort zone

I need to shake things up a bit. I seem to have lost my confidence. I had a bad car accident, followed by a minor bump but now feel terrified to drive to places I don’t know. I’ve started to avoid certain roads and even changed my plans which is nuts and I want to nip it in the bud NOW. With school hols looming, I am goig to take the kids to somewhere new in the car…...feel scared just thinking about it. :-/

spend less time online

Ok, having read advice on here I am going to ban myself from social networking sites on Monday’s, Wed and Fridays from now on…...not sure how easy it will be – it’s kind of a habit…..

help my step children to make new friends

As it says really. They don’t many people round here of their age, so I guess we need to work on that. Not sure quite how yet as their not really here enough to go to classes and things…...hmmmmmmm, need to think about it.

See all entries ...
