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.

bermudamohawkes ist Zeit, sich vorzubereiten (???)

I leave for Germany in 19 days! AHHH! I can’t believe this trip is really happening. While part of me would love to take off with an empty suitcase and worry about silly little things like clothes and toiletries when I get there, I know that’s not the most cost effective way to travel (especially considering the strength of the Euro and the length of my stay). My goal is to travel light, comfortably, and without stress. Piece of cake ;)

So here’s what I want/need to do before my departure:

May 16-25

  • email S with all my last-minute questions
  • invest in a few new articles of clothing that fit my body the way it is now
  • find cute and comfortable walking shoes (that can also be used for work)my Toms are going to fit the bill, I do believe
  • break in said walking shoes
  • find a comfortable pair of earbuds
  • buy a small notebook to use as a travel journal
  • learn five new German phrases
  • test my new travel pillowsuccess! it’s amazingly comfortable. I now have hope of sleeping on the red eye.

May 26-June 1

  • redo my closet for warmer weather
  • contact my bank
  • contact my credit card issuers
  • exchange some money
  • figure out my phone/communication situationSkype and gchat on my phone will suffice :) I’m not even going to bother trying to get phone service if I can stay in touch with home for free over wifi. It will be nice to be relatively disconnected.
  • play with the camera settings on my phone
  • clear pictures off my phone and camera SD cards
  • create a packing list
  • check it twice

June 2-3

  • update podcasts and load up my iPod
  • download a few new books
  • download any needed travel apps
  • make copies of all the cards (ID, credit cards, etc.) I’ll be taking with me to keep at home
  • make a copy of my passport to keep with me
  • withdraw some US dollars just in case
  • transfer money into checking account
  • go toiletry shopping
  • pack my luggage
  • have some fun packing my personal item 14 months ago
