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.

el mcaring for a sick parent

this is what i have been busy doing. dad was dx’ed with the cancer last month and it’s serious. it’s been a rollercoaster. things have settled (though whenever i say that, they get funky again). so far this is the scariest thing i’ve dealt with in my life and is a reminder of how little time we actually spend in our shells here on earth. 9 months ago

el mfood outings

i did some things that were soooo scary:

.i was supposed to go to lunch with my pal, but then we ran into his zirlfriend, and we all ended up eating together. i wanted to say no at first, but stayed. and it was super fun.
.i got myself to a dinner party with about 8 humans. i knew a handful only. i didn’t freak out and had nice conversation. 15 months ago

el mvalentine deliveries

tonight i was delivering valentines to 2 friends and was trying to discretely set in their mailboxes. there were a bunch of mailboxes together by my one pal’s house and i didn’t know which was hers because i didn’t know her address and her porch light was off. so i had to park my car, creep around, walk up to her door to see her address and then find her mail box. at first i was going to just drive away and not deliver because i was scared i’d get yelled at by someone, but i forced myself to do it. and it was fun. 17 months ago

el myoga class

last week i taught a complete, public yoga class where i knew no one in the class. i was super scared [even woke up at 4am unable to go back], but it went ok. i got positive feedback from the lady observing me. it was 10 minutes too short, so i’ll have to work on my timing a bit. but doing this was a huge relief. 17 months ago

el mweight room

el mUntitled
