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.

ihaveneatstuffI recconected with a friend, my best friend, from the time I was in the 7th-12th grade.

She found me after all this time.
She needed me.
I needed her.
Regardless of all that happened then…
or of all that has happened since then…
it did not change the fact that we needed each other now
in order to bring peace to our hearts, finally.
How awesome is it that we were able to do just that? 5 years ago

ihaveneatstuffThis is a goal that has been on my list before.

However, because of certain things that have occurred in my life lately I have chosen to put it back on my list of goals. I have been too wrapped up in getting the “things” done in my life and have neglected the most important “to-do” list of all. Telling the people around me how wonderful they are and how much they mean to me. Playing with my youngest daughter and grandson. Being there to listen when my oldest needs me. Taking the time to commit random acts of kindness for strangers. Weeding my brother’s front garden because their house is on the market and they have already moved t Dallas. Playing with my pets. Telling my parents thank you. I want to remember that whatever I don’t get done today I can always pick up tomorrow. It’s only by forgetting to do the things that I just mentioned that I’ll have failed. 6 years ago
