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.

flutter is full of wonderI had a friend ask me today

If I was obsessing over school and getting a high GPA

My immediate answer was No
I went on to explain that it wasn’t so much the 4.0 that I was worried about, but that the higher my GPA the better internship I will get when my classes are finished. The best internships go to the best students.

While all this is true, it leaves out one crucial fact.
I’m not in control.. God is
It’s so easy for me to get wrapped up in what is happening.. in what I want and forget this fact.
I know He is in control, but I somehow think that I have to help Him along

I’m not saying that I should sit back.. goof off and hope that God make me get good grades or do well in things just because I trust in Him. But I don’t need to stress and think that if I don’t do better then everyone else that God can’t and/or wont take care of my needs. I may not get the “best” internship in other peoples eyes, but if I believe God is in control, then I have to believe that He is in complete control of even what I might think is a second rate internship… it may be the best for me, the place where I fit in and enjoy the most.. or where I am needed the most.

I still need to do the best I can, but I need to also realize it’s not in my hands.. even if I fuss and stress.. it’s still out of my hands
It’s in God’s hands
He is in control 23 months ago
