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.

Doing pretty well...

I managed to clean all my different email accounts and I don’t pile up the new unread messages to unbelievable numbers. I am on top of this now.

Now, I will need to CLEAN and get rid of eamils that are just laying passively there with no use at all. Then, I will be able to mark this goal as DONE. can’t wait to mark another goal and make space for another :)



At last I finished goin through all my 1000 new messages. Now all I have left is delete those read emails I no longer need before I can tick this goal done _

Cheers for me :)






At 797 new messages…..still a long way to go


840 new messages =D

Yeay ^_^

It is taking time but I am now down to 900 from the original 1000 unread new messages :)


965 new messages :) yaay progress

after another year....I am still there

I can’t believe it has been a whole year since my last entry about this goal. OMG I am really so slow. I have never went through the whole inbox cleanup yet :) I am such a lazy bum!!

Today I have 1000 unread emails in my inbox, 1000!! I am doing it today even if it takes all day. This goal should not have taken a whole year to accomplish.

Cheer me up :)

Can't wait..

I was planning to do this on my first day of my summer holidays…but giving the rate at which my inbox is flooding with emails everyday….I need to take action right now. I have 301 emails in my inbox and 281 are unread!!

This is going to be one long night!!
