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.

foreverHoping cleaning my room? It's pretty necessary

identify 100 things that make me happy (besides money) (read all 5 entries…)
11-20... odd things that make me smile!

11. Jasmine,my beautiful golden retriever (seen above)... when she looks at me as if I can do no wrong. It makes me think about how often I do.

12. Being with my entire family on the beach

13. Going to the ocean and seeing how everything is exactly the same as how you left it; even if everything else is changing.

14. Belting out the words to your favorite song, as loud as you can, without caring that people can probably hear you.

15. Heath Ledger, watching all of his movies (xoxo forever Heath!!!)

16. Having a huge movie day with all of my friends, where we do nothing but sit on our butts, eat junk food, and watch.

17. Staying up late into the night and talking about everything and nothing at the same time.

18. Getting a brand new outfit and feeling completely invincible and confident.

19. Doing backflips and front flips on the trampoline… specifically the feeling of weightlessness and giddy joy immediately after.

20. Doing things you are absolutely terrified of doing, but you go ahead with them anyway!

Thanks for the comments guys! 1-10 were so much fun to think of. These are in no particular order, in case anyone was wondering. There were a few that slipped my mind, but I am sure that I will get them down later.
