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.

Mike <-- RESPECT. The monkey.

ask someone out (read all 6 entries…)
Already have 2 cheers, and no entries...

I guess I’d better make good on it! Now I just have to get over my debilitating fear of rejection. :( Might take me a while to work up to this one…

I have to ask..

How can you tell when they’re being fake? :D

Thanks for the tip, though—I’m not sure when I’ll be able to get around to this one… Work & school are eating up so much time right now. Well… Maybe I can ask somebody to lunch…

wunderland please pray for my brother as he battles with Leukemia

how can i tell?

well, it could be instinct or maybe intelligence – if you’re putting on a total show to get a woman and she’s impressed, i’d think twice about going out with her, ‘cause she’s either a complete idiot or a shallow person.

i’d definitely try to fit in a lunch date, just ask someone out as casually as possible – don’t over-think the approach :) i’m rooting for you!


I want to:
