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.

“To unpathed waters, undreamed shores.”

William Shakespeare (The Winter’s Tale)

I don’t know if you have this quote listed anywhere, but I found it when I was looking for something else, and it made me think of you. I hope your day was a fantastic one and that the year ahead is filled with love and laughter. 6 years ago

ThomasI sure hope it was nice.

Start by doing what’s necessary; then do what’s possible; and suddenly you are doing the impossible.St. Francis of Assisi

ThomasI didn't know it was your birthday.

Have a wonderfully amazingly intense and fulfilling birthday, Julie Jordan Scott. :-)

For it is in giving that we receive.St. Francis of Assisi6 years ago

RuthGFrom St. Teresa:

Dios no ha de forzar nuestra voluntad; toma lo que le damos; mas no se da a sí del todo hasta que nos damos del todo.

God does not force our will; God receives all that we give him; but God does not give himself fully until we give ourselves fully.

May you be flooded with blessings on this birthday.
