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.

3 more days until Whale Watching in NEWFOUNDLAND

This will be amazing and If I can master the kayak…well who knows could be out there even closer…I know I will be tempted to jump in with them. I truly hope I see one. This will be the second time after whales this year (Honduras for whale sharks in april..now whales in NFLD August) Either way this goal and swimming with whale sharks stays until complete!



NARROWING THIS DOWN TO VANCOUVER, CANADA

OR MASSACHUSETTS, USA, THESE ARE 2 OF THE TOP 6 PLACES TO WHALE WATCH IN THE WORLD. THIS BIT OF INFORMATION JUST BRINGS ME A STEP CLOSER.



Im starting to see how some of my goals can be met

for example – go whale watching, go deep sea fishing and some others may happen when I go to Finland and Sweden this winter. The other goal of going on vacation somewhere warm….who wouldnt want to after -25 in scandinavian winter. So when I go somewhere warm I could play volleyball everyday 2-3 times a day!! yeah!!! and go snorkeling on a coral reef. Possibilities are endless!
