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.

Drink a cup of coffee every day in May, in honor of DJ. (read all 3 entries…)
I had to stop the caffeine...

so I couldn’t quite complete this goal, but I did have fun trying. For me it was more about learning to drink coffee (without chocolate added to it), than about the flavors, etc.

Thanks, DJ, for sending me your wonderful, fresh-roasted coffee, it was really a treat that helped make this goal even funner. And thanks to all my other teammates for their support and camaraderie, especially our captain, Deni!!!


You did the absoulute best you could do...

and that’s all that matters! :D

And, you’re welcome for the support. That’s what my teams are ideally about. :D

Way to go, Flirt! :D

Thanks, Deni!!!

I’m looking forward to being on another team with you!!!
