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.

lever doot as slaav!
Be more courageous, never give up, inspire others

My Frisian ancestors lived, fought and died according the motto, “Lever doot as slaav!” It is better to be dead than to be a slave. Independent people are know that they must collaborate with others, inspire others. They are also necessarily courageous; courage is a like a muscle that is strengthened through exercise, repetition and will. A truly independent and courageous person realizes the importance of NEVER, EVER, EVER starting to think like a slave.

This motto has historical significance; especially for people who believe in what the United States represents. The Frisian republic is the first known republic of independent citizens founded over 1100 years ago in late ninth century … Friesland is first of several independent Dutch republics … which Madison and Hamilton wrote about in the 20th of the Federalist papers ... which are the intellectual basis for the Constitution of the United States.
