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.

GloryEnochHow to create unity?

A few years ago after graduating from my Master’s Degree Program, I was so zombified from the weight of the coursework and was looking forward to time off. But the day after the Monday after my last exam, I woke up feeling like an orphan. I had no new direction.

My dad came down to visit for the convocation. So he took me out to the Airport Fellowship Church. We got there and they were holding a prophetic encounter for anyone interested in lining up. So, I got in line.

After waiting 45 minutes, a group of 3 girls called me over. I sat down. I was horribly depressed and now not confident from the looks of them. The first girl spoke.

“I sense you have a wall around you and God just wants to help you take it down. Brick by brick. Every brick you take down, He will multiply until there are no walls between you and Him or anyone else anymore. Just love.”

The second girl spoke. “I see a windmill”, she said.

The third girl spoke. “I’m from Brazil. In my country, we HUG people”, she hugged herself. “I sense right now, God just wants to give you a great big HUG”.

They gave me the tape. I sat back down to wait for my dad to finish so we could leave.

After waiting a few minutes, he waved me over. There were a group of 3 people, 2 men and 1 woman – all mature – wanting to speak with me.

Dad left and they sat me down. The man in the middle spoke. He had a passage from the Bible he wanted to read to me.

“How do I lead these people, Lord, when I am so young and these people are so many?”

I started to weep great waves of grief. He kept reading and reading and saying and doing things. And each scripture ripped through the mysteries of my mind and put their gentle finger on what my problems, hopes, fears, and dreams were.

I want to know. I want to know how to lead people. To create unity and harmony and agreement and understanding. Is that too much to ask? Will I ever have the wisdom to do it? This is my prayer. This was my prophecy. These are my Bible verses.
