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.

This morning, I got to be in a session with a wedding party. No one I knew, but it was still neat to see how excited and nervous they were. It was cute. Afterwards, I got to eat in the cafeteria. Not a big whoop, but I hardly ever get to – I’m usually getting done just in time to go somewhere else to pick someone up or drop something off, etc. It was nice to just be able to relax for a bit. A funny little matron came and sat with me until she realized she was already late and didn’t have time to eat her tapioca. She tried to pawn it off on me, but luckily, I already had pie – really, good chocolate pie! She gave her pudding to some other people and left me to take her tray in for her. Funny. THEN I went to the distribution center and the library and the post office before I went home. It was a very calm and sweet morning.



I want to:
