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’m inthralled with the idea of having a circle of amazing friends, I have for years. The only problems I’ve found is that the moment I find myself in such a circle I have to leave them. Don’t get me wrong I love the ebb and flow of my life, but I crave good friends to talk to, laugh with and in general just be myself around. I always manage to remain friends with my nearest and dearest for years but the distance leaves a lot to be desired when all you want is a hug. Physical closeness is important to me, and it’s so hard to comfort or be comforted by someone over the phone, I’m way too tactile for that. So I suppose to be more specific my goal should be to develop new quality friendships here in New York City. Since this happens to be the place I’ve found myself tethered too, and I do mean that in a very good way.

Thyself25 has gotten 7 cheers on this goal.


I want to:
