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.

Teriyaki kangaroo ricepaper rolls

Based on a recipe in the December 2009 issue of the Australian Weight Watchers magazine.
Tasty, fresh and light. Will definitely make these again some time. Great for the warmer weather we’ve been having.



stick to a schedule
Untitled

This would be easier, I think, if I had a typical working week. Every day is different though, so I can’t really establish a daily rythym. I’m doing my best to make a schedule for the next day before I go to bed each night and I’m mostly following the plan. This will take some time for me!



clean out my email
Untitled

I’ve sorted and deleted a heap of emails. The number of unread emails in my inbox is now down to about 100 instead of pushing 400. Still a fair bit to do, but I’ve made a lot of progress!
