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.

10 cheers

Success means we go to sleep at night knowing that our talents and abilities were used in a way that served others

This month isn’t going super well; but it feels like everyone is struggling a bit. But we’ve got more play and productivity on the horizon leading up to March. More skiing, more gym, back to work, more aat (although that starts next month) it’s all good :D

Are there any ideas for March as well?

I enjoy the sponsored link 'Get shit done'

So I still like reading everyone’s posts, they’re a boost. But it does feel like Feb is a…what’s the word. Difficult month for people.
Then there’s me coming late.
There’s still a good bit of February to go; plus if we’re finding this month a little tough just think of how bright and breezy March will be with it’s probable pun with Marching onward.
But yea lets go have an adventure – thanks joyjoei ;)

Next thing we're touching

So I went skiing today, it was cool. That’s got to be play right?
Plus I’m revising so that’s productive.
Day three and done I win :P
Only joking – I’m a joker just fyi
Doing stuff is what I’m doing right now, so that’s always a good thing :)


Deadlines are always fun and with this being the shortest month double deadline.
I’ve just got to keep my head down and focus on everything I do and keep it all pointed forward.
Lets go.
