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.

ethanunzickernew plan

Ok new plan. I’m dumb.
Instead of taking a large chunk of time to review several things, I’m just gonna review individual goals through out the week.

ethanunzickerheres the deal

Ok so I haven’t written much on here in the past few weeks, for a variety of reasons. First I haven’t had much time because Masters is a big ol’ mess of busy. Second, I’ve been losing focus. I don’t really know why. I think it’s because God has been so faithful and gracious to me lately and I let myself coast. My life these past few weeks have been probably the best of my life. It’s only getting better too. But the thing is is that I lost focus of the goal.
Nina said some things right before worshiping the Lord today, that spoke directly to me. She warned us not to let ourselves slip into neutral and just coast. Neutral is on the way to reverse, she said. You have to stay in drive.
I was thinking about a car coasting down a hill. It’s smooth sailing and you can actually go pretty fast. But what happens when there’s a hill that goes up? You’re momentum might carry you up that hill a little bit but eventually the law of gravity says that you will go back down. You will go in reverse and eventually go back up the hill you just coated down. Then eventually, you will just stop at the bottom of two hills. If you then decide to put that car in drive and go up the hill in front of you, it’s gonna be hard pressed to make it up.
These are the verses God led me to for my scripture study this past week:
Deuteronomy 8:10 When you have eaten your fill, be sure to praise the Lord your God for the good land he has given you.

11 “But that is the time to be careful! Beware that in your plenty you do not forget the Lord your God and disobey his commands, regulations, and decrees that I am giving you today. 12 For when you have become full and prosperous and have built fine homes to live in, 13 and when your flocks and herds have become very large and your silver and gold have multiplied along with everything else, be careful! 14 Do not become proud at that time and forget the Lord your God, who rescued you from slavery in the land of Egypt. 15 Do not forget that he led you through the great and terrifying wilderness with its poisonous snakes and scorpions, where it was so hot and dry. He gave you water from the rock! 16 He fed you with manna in the wilderness, a food unknown to your ancestors. He did this to humble you and test you for your own good. 17 He did all this so you would never say to yourself, ‘I have achieved this wealth with my own strength and energy.’ 18 Remember the Lord your God. He is the one who gives you power to be successful, in order to fulfill the covenant he confirmed to your ancestors with an oath.

I actually only studied 15-18 but I thought you might like a little context. I need to shift back into drive before I’m done coasting down this hill. So what I’m going to do, is find some time and review some of the goal I have on here. Pretty much for the more serious one so that will exclude ones like, “grow a beard” and “beat my mac at chess”(which I still say is impossible).
Here’s the deal though. I’m not going to post a bagillion, mile-long posts about everything. Probably the only result you will see from my review is some goals disappear and maybe some be added. Not that I’m not willing to let you all in on my personal life and walk with the Lord, but some of it just isn’t necessary to post on the world wide web. It wouldn’t even really be bad to post some stuff on here, but it’s not necessary, so I won’t even bother.
After this review, my 43 things might look a little more lighthearted. Not so many goal about discipline and walking further into truth. 43 things has taught be the valuable art of writing down what you want to accomplish. But not everything in my life needs to be posted for the world to see. I don’t need attention. I don’t need cheers and comments.
So this review is not really going to be for the public eye. It’s for me and the Lord. 6 years ago
