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.

Read Your Best Year Yet

MamaKittyToday I worked

all the way through “Lessons Learned”. I want to rest this until tomorrow, so that I can look through everything and add to my reflections if I want. My frame of mind is so much better this year than it was last year at this time. I am really getting excited about revising, organizing, and accomplishing my goals for the upcoming year! 6 years ago

MamaKittyCozying into this...

Reading this book is a process. So included in the process is reading others’ progress through Make 2008 my best year yet goal. What a wonderful wealth of experience! I’m glad I’m taking this time before the new year to prepare for a Best Year Yet goal for 2009. 6 years ago

MamaKittyReady to get going!

Last December, about Christmas week, I purchased Your Best Year Yet. I knew that I would not read it before the new year. I considered reading it and applying the ideas at some arbitrary time of the year. Yet, I knew that this would not suit me.

At the end of last year, I really felt good polishing up my goals and moving ahead. Anticipating the new year, finds me in a place of great optimism. I would like to consciously use Your Best Year Yet as a guide to more focused goal planning. 6 years ago
