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.

So fun!!

I got my opportunity to climb FOR FREE through my school! Wicked deal. Went three nights with my friend, Sarah. Will definitely do it again!!!

I guess the challenge due dates can't be extended.

A shame. I’ll probably go in October. See, the thing is, you need a belay partner and there are very little people here interested in climbing with me and the people who are interested, we have to coorinate schedules. Very annoying. Why do I have goals that depend on other people for me to finish?
Anyone in Ottawa want to go climbing?

Not looking good...

Kept putting it off. Running out of time. Oh dear.

I made a phone call.

There a place here, Vertical Reality, which offers private lessons on wall climbing. I made a phone call and left a message but I haven’t heard back from them so far. (I’ll have to call them again very soon.) I can get quite busy especially with boxing (which I do two nights a week) but I’ll find a way to fit it in. I always do somehow.
