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.

mhawkinsI wore blue jeans to church

On Easter morning, I took a risk. (ok it was a pretty small risk, but still a risk) While my husband had on dress pants, and my son had on khakis, I wore blue jeans to our Easter Sunday sunrise service. I did dress them up a bit with sandals and a pretty pink sweater, though. While I wear them quite often, it was probably more noticeable yesterday with so many people dressed in their Easter Sunday finest. I feel strongly that casual (though neat) dress is just as appropriate as dress clothing. Not to mention, the service was outside at 7 a.m., so it was really chilly! Anyway, I took a little risk, and it didn’t kill me. ;) 4 months ago


mhawkinsI'm retiring!

Ok, this is a goal, but it’s also a bit of a risk. I’m retiring from teaching in May and will draw a nice retirement, but in order to maintain the lifestyle we enjoy, I’m going to have to be sure to keep my income up. So, I’ll have two other work-from-home jobs that should thankfully supplement my finances. So, a bit of a risk, but definitely one that’s worth it ~ woo hoo!! 4 months ago

viobioWanting to not feel fear

Sometimes, things just flow. And I don’t even notice that there are risks to what I’m doing. That’s what I want.

To Fear:

“Hello, Mr. Fear! There you are! You and I are one. I embrace and comfort you. There, there. It will be ok, shhhhh. [Swaddling.] OK, I am dropping you off at the pool. Fly away, little guy. What brought about this fear? Past misunderstandings. Well, I can avoid the fear sneaking in by keeping myself busy with the habit of getting on a roll at work before surfing.” 13 months ago

viobiorisk for authenticity

I was ready to give up on this goal. Hang-gliding etc. is not a priority right now. But then I realized that doing work is a risk. Getting in touch with my feelings is a risk. This pink shirt is a risk. I need this kind of risk to feel alive, progressing and free to be authentic. 17 months ago

mhawkinsa good feeling!

I made a video for my real estate site and posted it just now—it’s really hard to put yourself out there and risk negativity or criticism… but I did it! Taking a risk feels really good… now on to the next one! 19 months ago

Ive been thinking about this recently and I think I actually do take more risks that I thought, as in most situations I would rather follow things through to see what happens, than not do then and end up wondering ‘what if’ forever.

So I am making headway, I just need to apply this to more aspects of my life. 21 months ago
