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.

34 - 37

34. The feeling of freedom after working solidly for months. In my last year of university I had to complete my dissertation, as I did biomedical science I undertook research in cardiovascular disease using actual human blood samples to try to understand if antioxidants can decrease the risk of cardiovascular disease. Anyway, not only did I have to attend my 25 hours of lectures a week, but also be in the lab for approximately 40 hours aswell. Needless to say I was always working, and the feeling of freedom was so great when I finally handed my project in. However it made me realise that im truly happy when am under a lot of stress work wise, and am working to a strict deadline. Looking back, its what made my final year so enjoyable, and on top of that I was doing my own research and discovering stuff that no other scientists had.

35. Looking up at clouds.

36. The fact that simple things make me happy.

37. being tipsy.
