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.

I read a little bit more last night.

I picked this book because when I saw the movie i thought it was a really good story.
I saw this story as something that I can relate to at this point in my life. The overall patience of Edmond. He was trapped on the Chataeu D’If for 14 years. I am going to be on Guam for two years. Then another 3 years left in the Navy. Edmond had so much time to think about his plan when he escaped. All I have is time to think and conjour up my great escape with plans of grandeur. It will be magnificent when I get off this island.
I love when literature transcends past art into life.

This is kind of BS goal.

Spoiler Alert
I just want more completed goals. Most of my goals I have require a lot of time. I plan on completing this in a month. While I am writing this I realize that I have a lot of long term goals. I don’t have any real good short term goals. So this is one of those short ones.
I just read the up to the part where he is about to escape.

Mark has gotten 5 cheers on this goal.
