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.

Maybe it is giving up.But I think I’m just a good a friend when I have little contact.I still help people when they need me….I’m just not a very social person.So…don’t know about this one….


Send an email to my friend Annemieke.She lives too far from me to visit.We try to keep in touch by email,but the whole keeping in touchthing is hard for me to keep up.But today I have send here a long email.


Called my best friend to ask how she was doing.I’m so proud of myself.Had a nice talk with her and later on with her husband.He said whe should all meet soon.They miss us.So I think I have to set a new goal.Visit my friends more often.


I’m just not a social person.I hate to speak to people on the phone.
But my best friend is going to a bad fase in her life now.So I ‘ve decided to call her this week to ask her how she’s doing and listen to her problems.I think she’ll be pleasently surprised.
I think I’ll call her tommorow when her kids are all at school.
