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.

Why don't I do this??

I learned to play the guitar a long time ago. I took lessons for three and a half years. But as soon as I didn’t have a teacher making sure I was practicing or a band that was wanting the best out of me, I just stopped playing completely. The only time I ever play any more is with the worship band at church (which doesn’t really require much in the way of skill).

Things to do:
  • Relearn my scales
  • Learn songs that I know will be a challenge to play
  • Scan those piles and piles of guitar magazines in my room and bookmark lessons that pique my interest and then do them.

And maybe I should invest in a new electric guitar. The one I have now is definitely not in good enough shape to inspire good playing.
