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.

SiobhanWas great yesterday...

...happy in my work, upbeat & positive, came down to earth with a bump, should say crash landing today. Hopefully when I get in things will have started shaping up in the kitchen front. 8 years ago

SiobhanExcited... on the house responsible for this & going to move to a larger office (yet to be remodelled & sited) so will have my own again much better for working with my learners. 8 years ago

Siobhanquite positive & up beat at the minute...

...things seem to be going well at the minute which has a knock on effect in other areas in a positive way. Just recieved a certificate for a course I did on-line for a year & got some congrats from work colleagues, which was nice. Made the years study worthwhile. Went to see my line manager about something & she was on my side immediately & tried to sort it out, concerning a learner, so this made me feel good, glad to know I was supported. Also been on a course today that I’m working on to deliver to our staff, picked up some good ideas to incorporate & also proved to me that I had everything covered & knew what I was talking about.Hope it continues. Positive thinkiing is having a good effect on me. 8 years ago

SiobhanBack to basics

Went to Mum & Dads on days off this week for a break. Managed to get a new lease of life there. Never stopped was busy & got plenty of fresh air. Didn’t stay in bed as didn’t have the opportunity but loved my time. they live in the country which I suppose makes all the difference & they have a large garden which I always spend alot of time in. Only down side is I get nothing done at home.May be that’s why I went, another distraction technique 8 years ago

SiobhanReading self help books

Just bought & read ‘Cosmic Ordering’ & reading ‘The Motivated Mind’ (Dr Raj Persaud). Trying to become positive thinking. Now adopting “Peace be with you” when encountering negative thoughts, people & situations. Will let you know how it’s going. Already am beginning to see the positive side of things. 8 years ago
