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.

Well, I didn’t complete my personal challenge of getting my GED by the end of October (I didn’t pass my test!), but I’m going to be trying even harder on this goal to get it done by the end of the year. 13 months ago

LilsassycatI Made the First Move

I finely did it. I signed up with a GED program in March. I have been doing great. I have a wonderful instructor who never minds all my questions. :)
The hardest part of it for me was making that first phone call. Every year, I would let fear get the better of me. I was very anxious about going, but I felt determined to make this a year of change.It was scary to have to put on paper where I was in my education. I knew this was the painful part you have to go through to get to the good part. A good thing I got out of it immediately was to be able to be honest of where I was and not be judged. The people there made me feel very comfortable and relaxed.
I scored MUCH higher than I thought I would. I am happy to say the only thing I have to work on is my math. :D
It has been almost a month now since I signed up and I can honestly say I have never been happier. I feel so good about myself and knowing that I AM moving forward with my life. I feel foolish to have wasted so much time when I could have done this much sooner,but I know it was not in God’s timing. I believe there is a reason for every thing.
I hope I am able to cross this off my list this year. :)

Good luck to anyone else pursuing the same goal! 20 months ago
