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.

Update as of 02/15/09

Life went a bit sideways during mid-January. Working on this list was side-tracked by a situation that added the role of “community activist” into my life. But here’s the update:

  • Replace the broken driver’s side mirror on my car – Done.
  • Fix the leaking shower head – Done.
  • Mud over the 63 holes in the bedroom ceiling left behind by the insulation contractor – Done.
  • Fix the leaking bathtub overflow (this may be a mechanical issue or a different gasket may be needed) – Done.
  • Back-up and clean up my laptop – Done.
  • Get a Dirt Devil vacuuming broom for keeping my file floors clean – Done.
    * Get my car’s oil changed and its tires rotated – Scheduled for Wednesday, 02/18/09.
  • Clean my chaise lounge with an upholstery cleaner.
  • Clean/organize the bedroom closet in a way that works well for me.
  • Clean/organize the kitchen closet, including creating an effective means for storing the recycling in between the once-per-month drop-off events – Done.
  • Get no-skid casters for my bed frame – Done.
    * Install a useful coat/hat rack and use it!
