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.

Found out theres

a food pantry/refugee center place not 5 miles from my house today. I’d heard of the place before but didn’t know where it was exactly. Went to lunch with some friends of my mom’s today and they knew. Awesome! Goal is to go there on Monday and see about helping out at least once day a week for a couple hours.

Then….also read the newsletter at the church I sometimes attend. They need help getting people registered and in the database this month. Sent a note to them to volunteer there on Tuesday for the rest of the month.

Then….talked to my mom’s friends about helping me get school supplies for the back pack group that my friend Dave does. They said they would gladly help! Let’s see if they follow through.

I’m wanting to ask my other 2 groups of friends. Just not sure how to go about doing that.

Feeling good about the direction of this goal though!



I want to:
