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.

Allegra A. Nanakorobi yaoki: Japanese for "fall seven times, get up eight"

Start a book of quotes that inspire me (read all 38 entries…)
Anime quote time

“I want to be the kind of loser that dies biting the throat out of his enemy.” from Tenjho Tenge

Now this quote sounds negative, but to me it means that even if you are facing overwhelming odds, with a 1 percent chance of winning, you still try your hardest, even if you lose, you “die” on your feet knowing you gave everything you had. Don’t let things happen to you. Don’t go down without a fight.

And sometimes trying until the very end results in a last minute victory.


Allegra A. has gotten 3 cheers on this entry.
