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 never thought i would tire of sitting on my fat arse in front of the television

yes finally i have acompilshed this goal! and it was worth it but i found my self becoming restless after the two towers (think about it guys sitting there,in front of a tv screen for roughly 6 hours, who wouldn’t get a bit restless)
how did i find the time you say? well its now chrismas hollidays for me and i woke up one morning and instead of just sitting around watching “friends” repeats or “will and grace”, i said to myself “no, i’m going to use this day to watch all three LOTR” it was very spontaneous of me i think.
so i suggest that for all the LOTR’s fan out there that wish to do wat i have done…dont plan it just wake one day and do it….its the christmas hollidays now so wat else do you have to do beside shopping?


so close to reaching this goal…i plan to do it within the next few days so i let you know when it happens… will happen…I PROMISE YOU!!!!!!!!!!!!

love to .... but who has the time

like i said, who really has that much time on their hands these days…well maybe it more a thing of “making time” like with everything else i havent done and want to do. but i do solemmly swear i will make time to do this.
