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.

family conversation

My mom, sister, and I were together one night a few weeks ago (which is easy to do because we all work together) and they asked how I was when I walked in the door. After thinking about it for a moment, I answered “I’m pretty content.”
I really think that’s what this goal means. To be content with the choices you make about your life.
Yeah, there are some things I’d like to do that I’m not in a place where it’s possible, but I’m not ruling anything out.
I have good friends I stay in touch with, I’m working to pay my bills, I’m trying to get through school, and I love my family (for the most part, anyway wink)

All I have to do

is decide what this will mean to me… I mean, I have time to decide, I only turned 20 in October, but I need to figure out what’s important to me, and what “making the most of it” means to me.
