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.

Tomorrow

I’ll be meeting my friend C —whom I bumped into a couple weeks ago— and our mutual friend R, who is coming into town from Tabasco. We’ll be having dinner, and it will be interesting to talk about the paths our lives have taken. I already caught up a bit with C last week.

It was four of us hanging out when finishing uni back in 1992. I was trying to get the four of us on an after-school trip to Europe. Well, C married shortly after; R didn’t finish her thesis so had to stay longer; and G’s father set a design studio for her. So then, I was the only one to take off to Spain. I find it funny that 18 years later I’m at the same point again!! Talk about life cycles…



Luna has gotten 28 cheers on this goal.
