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 just watched an Oprah episode, where people were finding their calling in helping others. They were all making a difference for someone… and it was truly heart-warming. And as I have debated my calling… my journey through life, I wonder if I just haven’t thought about something outside myself. Perhaps there is some sort of humanitarian work out there that will open my eyes to my destiny. I feel like apathy is pulling so much from my life right now… and it’s about time for me to really view my options and the possibilities that life has to offer. And maybe if I were to find a way to make a true difference in this world… or even the life of someone else… maybe then I would find a filling for some of the emptiness inside me.

These people were truly amazing- and I’ll never forget what I saw today.
