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.

jamesthong is ready to accomplish some goals!!

develop a true appreciation for life
127 Hours

Today, I went and saw 127 Hours in theaters, and I realized a couple things. My friends and I are wayyy different: One came out mortified with the ending, one broke down and cried after the fact, and one was nauseous for about five hours afterwards. I came out rejuvenated and inspired. While we all agreed that it was an incredible movie, they thought it was sad and I thought it was happy. It was a beautiful story. I could not fathom having such a strong mentality to get me through that. I can’t imagine having that kind of will to live. My new goal is to become perpetually hungry for life. i want to want more.


jamesthong has gotten 2 cheers on this entry.
