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.

pioneerspiritphew, done!

Just sending it out to a friend to proof it … and I’ll send it off tomorrow. 7 years ago

pioneerspiritlast push tonight

Get cover letter to where I want it, and email it tonight or tomorrow morning.

I’ve had a crazy week, and one more to come before things slow down—started new practice, organizing grade level function for this week, girl scout field trip and tea party, soccer and car trip to Hanna Andersson outlet sale (3 hours away), soccer, and two sick girls.

This week: make sure volunteers and items sign-up for said function for youngest; and attend and help out at function for eldest; drive at two different field trips on two days, girl scout meeting, organize farewell gift and ceremony for leader who’s moving away, finish craft debacle from last week. Volunteer in classrooms, including special pesto party event. Attend kid’s party, last soccer game, and temple service. And work. And apply for other thingy.

I missed service this morning, I just wanted a day where I wasn’t running from one event to the next, to the next. But i missed it, and I think my kids did too. I do my own TaiJi practice and meditating, but I need the connection to others’ practice too.

Will stay up and work on cover letter now. 7 years ago

pioneerspirityes, I know I 'm procrastinating

But Demetri Martin is one of the funniest guys ever, and as I was watching his flipchart youtube video= or his guitar jokes doodles= , I was not only CTMQ (chuckling to myself quietly—his more honest option to writing “lol”), I was actually LOL-ing. 7 years ago
