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.

littlelamblostSeeing plans through

This week I saw my Nana and my Aunt, although I missed the chance to see my Brother. It felt good to actually make the time to be with them, and I’m glad I managed to stick to my goal of spending planning quality time with at least one Family member every week.

I’m not sure how the family holiday is going to pan out, since I found out my Brother forgot to apply for leave from work! However, I really want to catch up with him this week. It’s been too long.

This week:

-Catch up with my younger Brother, maybe go bowling or to a movie in the city? We could even invite my Sister.

-Have a coffee with my Dad, I haven’t seen him in a while.

-(It doesn’t really count as time but) Send my Mother a letter.

Next Month:

-Help my Aunt move house.

-Take my Nana out for dinner.

-Go the library with my Grandfather. 6 months ago

littlelamblostPutting Family First.

I have the most amazing family, and I say that without any hint of bias. My family kicks butt, and the people in my family are incredible.

For some reason I don’t spent half as much time with these amazing, incredible, kick butt people as I should. Part of the problem is the fact that I’m so comfortable with my relationship with the members of my Family that I don’t worry how they’ll feel if I go a few weeks without seeing them, or bail on plans the day before because something else has come up. Not the same way I worry about Friends.

I don’t give my Family the best because I know they love me at my worst and that just isn’t fair.

In light of that I’m going to endeavour to spend planned quality time with at least one Family member every week and stop taking my relationships with them for granted.

As it happens I current have some Family activities planned for the next little while.

This Week:

Helping Nana in her garden and going through photo albums in search of a photo I desperately want to blow up and hang in my house.

Swinging by and seeing my Brother on the way to Nana’s, since they live so close together.

Having dinner with my Aunt, her two kids and husband.

Next Month:

A weekend away with my younger Brother and Sister.

I will cherish the time that I have with my mother, father, brother and sister. They molded me into who I am today and I owe them more than I could ever repay. 21 months ago
