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.

can really make a difference in a room. I just painted an accent wall in one room and it just changed the whole thing but it felt like so much work.

I agree ..

freshly painted walls are like fresh linen on the bed .. this goal was one of my first’s and i can think of a million and one excuses as to why i haven’t done it yet .. i should just go buy the paint and get on with it .. thank you for your comment, maybe that will do the trick .. :)

I have this pile of material

that I bought over a year ago to make a duvet cover, bed skirt and curtains. They are sitting there all piled up, just waiting for me to work with them. And I like you can think of a million and one excuses why they are not done yet.

I need a kick in my own pants!!
