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.

And a very good one, at that. Every night before bed, and any other chance I get, I’m in full-immersion of my dream future. Living it out in a state of already being complete, faith, belief, and expectancy, this is said to be a prime strategy in creating whatever it is that you want in the real world.

It’s an experiment, and so far I’m at least seeing increases in my confidence and levels of inspiration.

It finally happened!-Thanks to Takhisis!

We went for a walk through this place called Cathedral of the Pines a few miles from my house. It’s beautiful and there are flowers and trees and places to meditate and just enjoy nature as well as graves and religious icons and statues, etc…

And while we were walking we discussed life, and love, and senior project (and they’re all connected-as disorganized as that conversation seems like it would have been, everything just started flowing once we started talking).

I’ve been having such trouble getting inspired with this project, and i realized, i don’t want to do it! That is, the idea i came up with, I honestly didn’t want to do. I felt nothing for it, and it evoked no emotion or real connection to me, as well as the fact that I had way too many ideas going on and no end result in view.

So we talked about things that I feel strongly about, and what moves me, what inspires me…and it hit me. An idea i’d had at the start of my senior project, but shut down because i was afraid my parents wouldn’t approve…Well i took that idea, and morphed into something i felt even stronger about and realized, it’s not about whether they approve or not, it’s about me, and making a statement, and sharing a bit of myself through my work. (And i’m pretty sure they’ll approve of this new idea too)

And so, i’m inspired and have started working on this project once more…maybe this should have been under senior project, but originally, i was just inspired and realized i could tie it in to my project…sooo let’s say it’s both! =) 3 years ago
