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.

Piece by piece

This goal is taking forever as I don’t want to spend all of my money on clothing; however, I am slowly adding nicer clothes and slowly getting rid of “filler.” So stuff I’m not ashamed to own:

Shoes –
*Clarks Desert Trek Beeswax Leather
*Clarks Desert Trek Black Suede
*Vass Alt English Cognac on the R Last
*Zelli Vintage Alligator

Trousers/Jeans –
*5EP Resin One Wash Bootcut Black
*5EP Raw Straight
*Balenciaga Cream w/Pink Pinstripe Cotton
*Incotex Black Cotton
*Incotex White Cotton/Linen Blend
*Nudie Bootcut Ola Raw
*Nudie Slim Jim Raw
*Ralph Lauren Purple Label Black Linen

Shirts -
*Agnes B Long-sleeved Black/Brown Striped T-shirt
*Agnes B Black Turtleneck
*Calvin Klein Micro Modal Black T-shirt (4)
*Made by Wendy Spider-Web Pattern Sports Shirt

I want to expand the above by adding a few more dress shoes and dress boots, a half-dozen bespoke dress shirts, more well-made casual shirts and knits, colorful and well made socks, a couple nice belts, more odd trousers in different colors, a few odd sportcoats, a few ties, a couple dress and panama hats, and eventually a well made tailored linen suit.
