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.

Rudiano BambinoPower of prayer.

I may talk past some of y’all in this entry…Quite personal and quirky. But here goes! Been struggling lately trying to make ends meet AND pursuing full time ministry (not priesthood, just spending time teaching the bible to the public). I had been praying about it, but without much faith. Then last week I decided I really wanted it. I was prepared to fight for it. My prayers were more earnest. I also told my friends about my goal ( I’m sure they prayed for me too). Then one of them put a word for me with the firm he works for. I wasn’t sure it would be worth it as I work in a similar firm. But I went for a trial yesterday anyway. It turns out to be much much better paid than where I am now (I made in one night what I would make in a 3 days!) It will support my ministry nicely!
I’m so grateful!
Thanks Jah!

MarianneGrateful for my job

I am grateful that I have a job that allows me to advocate for others, contribute a valuable service, determine my own schedule, exercise creative liberties, engage in the community, and promote a rewarding cause. I appreciate that I live so close to the office that the commute is only minutes – or even a bike ride away. I am happy that I have an office that feels like my own with space for work, conversation, relaxing, even meditating. I am grateful for the Board of Directors and volunteers who generously donate their time and talents. I am thankful that I make a good wage and am treated with respect by my coworkers and supervisor. I appreciate that I have control over my projects and future plans. 9 months ago
