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.

Do something scary every week

I think Tim's... — 16 minutes ago

feeling is that his life is overloaded with the things he wants to do now that he has auto-piloted so many mundane things. I thought the book was both insightful and entertaining, and the process of delegating is what I took away the most (although I do not have an Indian errand-runner yet!).

“Act first, apologize later” is a great take away, too. I have found that 99% of the time there is little to no consequence to having taking an action without going through the laborious “approval” process. And many people are already so overwhelmed that they really don’t want to overturn an action that’s already been taken, if it involves work on their behalf. I learned this initiative trick from Richard Marcinko’s books, where he is often shooting off a message or email that basically says: “I’m going to do such and such, ‘unless otherwise directed’”. And then he would act before anyone had a chance to respond.

crochet — 6 hours ago

helps fuel my passion, which is YARN. Or, it the other way around? I teach crochet, host a yarncrafting circle every week, and carry yarn with me wherever I can.

I’m suspecting that you are crafty in other ways. Most people have creative pursuits.
