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.

I've been out and about

every day for the last week, and that nearly always means some time spent in the cafe. Mostly it’s been with other people, but I’ve been by myself too.

Cambridge is blessed with a few cafes that I really like.


I’ve been going with other people more, which is really nice, but not exactly the intent behind this goal.


I went yesterday, and sat, and read, and drank tea, and ate cake. It was a close run thing, but I’m glad I did.


I’m doing a bit more with people, but not by myself. I was talking about this with my new friend as well, and she wants to do the same thing.


I had another meeting in the cafe and turned up a little bit early again. But I’m still not sure that it really counts.


I went to a meeting in a cafe early today, so I could sit and read for a bit. Does that count? It was a good meeting too.

Other than that, I’ve only been going to the cafe with other people still.

I used to much more than I do,

And I’d like to get back into the habit. It was good. It felt real. I’m not sure why I stopped.

Measureability—I’ll start by saying once a week, and it has to be during the day.

cyberpunkdreams has gotten 26 cheers on this goal.
