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.

And gorgeous.

Very peaceful and calm, even if it’s all yellow and gold. Healing sort of room.

I love the stars on the ceiling—I oriented them with the directions, which means they’re canted somewhat. The house was built in relationship to the hill behind it, not to the directions. 9 years ago

annepandoraAlmost done!

The only thing left is to paint the starts on the ceiling. The curtains are up, the pictures are up, everything’s painted. Lovely, sunny, beautiful room on the border of the house (where it moves form the 1790 part of the house to the 1840 part). 9 years ago



IT’s honey yellow, with goldenrod trim; the ceiling is midnight blue. I still have the stars to paint on the ceiling, and the curtains to sew. 9 years ago

annepandoraColor Choices and Fabric

I’ve got it all in my head now; not at all what I expected. Litght yellow walls, and I’ve got excellent yellow fabric with bees and laurel wreaths (that’d be Napoleon’s anti-Merovingian symbolism) AND fleurs-de-lis (ha, ha! Napoleon! thake that!), all woven in in white.

Love that fabric.

And you can’t go wrong with bees. 9 years ago

annepandoraThe Floor's Gorgeous

Much to my delight, when we came home we found the finished floor to be even more lovely than I’d expected. The seam between the 1790’s half of the house and the 1840’s half of the house runs down the middle of the room, with the two different floors on either side; in the seam you can see the tops of the original structural standing beams; the space is filled in with whatever was concrete in 1840—and the whole thing is amazing and beautiful.

True boundary manifestation. 9 years ago

annepandoraFloor's done!

We’ve heard from the contractor and the floor’s done - the carpet’s off, and the linoleum’s been sanded off, and the two different floors have been sanded - and he’s left the concrete strip down the middle.

so it’s a manifestation of the boundary energy in the house.

Quite satisfactory. 9 years ago

annepandoraI'll Have to Meditate on It

The possibilities are vast. So I’m leaving time to think, to wait and see where it is I want to be—that way I’ll knonw what it is I want to do. 9 years ago
