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.

Have two classes left.

Was scheduled to finish in December 2010, but I fell behind in the last semester. I want everyone to see that you just have to keep moving the chains, keep doing it, keep going – I know it’s cliche, but it’s true!

Still trucking along

I hit a snag last year, failing one class and then taking the summer off to regroup. As a result, graduation is pushed back to December 2010.

I will not quit, but I wish I were done already, and my nights and weekends were my own! One more year, I keep telling my self. One more year, one more year, one more year.

Finished my first semester!

A’s and B’s!! If I stay this course I’ll be finished with my prereqs by the end of 2007 and ushered into the business department with flying colors. I feel like a super hero!!

Got started!

I have my AA already. I’m pursuing a
BBA/MIS. I started in January, I’m doing well and LOVING it! I feel like there’s finally a light at the end of this tunnel!
