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.

It's Easier Than You Think

Staying youthful means to live fully every day. Don’t waste time and energy on petty issues and negative people (that will definitely make you old and cranky). Unleash your inner child.

Laugh always (especially at yourself), learn something new, keep up with pop culture, and remember all the good times in the past. Remind yourself to keep creating hilarious new memories.

Always be goofy and spread the fun to everyone you meet. For more tips on Surviving Adulthood for the Kid at Heart, visit my blog. I’d love to chat with you -

That’s easy for you since you look so young! I checked out your website and in that one photo of you (I assume that’s you on the scooter saying 40 is the new 10), I could swear you’re a college girl. You are one beautiful woman :)

Well thanks Chuck! But notice, it’s not exactly a hi-def picture.

Thanks for stopping by! Cheers!
