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.

visit Tibet (read all 2 entries…)

Very excited that i took the time to think about this one seriously…finally. I’m now planning and actually saving to take a ‘volunteer vacation’ to either tibet or dharamsala in the next couple years. Right now either will be acceptable.

I’m researching the companies that offer these opportunities first. I really want to do the ‘volunteer’ part because i think it will better allow me to be immersed in the culture and make real connections with people. If none of the organizations look good though I wlll be doing it on my own.

Fall in love (read all 2 entries…)
I'm not sure

if it’s a rationalization or not… but the more I work on my other goals, the less important this becomes. Is a love for something that is most easily labeled as ‘humanity’ love enough? Doubtfull, but it make me feel less ‘the lonliest girl in the world’ and more of a person who just happend to be alone.

Still open to the love, and proceeding in my normal cautiously optimistic fasion. Just don’t feel like i need to sprint to get there.

be a better buddhist (read all 2 entries…)
This week

If feel that I am a better buddhist every day. It’s weird though because I’ve sat here trying to figure out why, and it’s just something I can’t quantify.
