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.

Week one..

This week is going to be dedicated to memorizing all the US states and their capitals. Thats the first goal and then I suppose I should move on to Canada and Mexico, but I’m getting ahead of myself. This week is US States and Capitals only. wish me luck.

"Are you smarter than a fifth grader?"

It’s a silly goal I know, but the last time I really knew all the continents, countries, oceans, seas, states, and capitals was back when I was ten in the fifth grade. It’s like that show with Jeff Foxworthy “Are you smarter than a fifth grader?” Well frankly as this point.. I can’t say that I know. Haha lol so thats my goal. Plus so many of my goals are ongoing things I can’t ever really cross them off my list… Like become fluent in ASL i mean come on… will i ever truly be an expert Ohhh probably not.. so that’s an everlasting goal I have to strive for but “learning all the countries” that is a goal that can be achieved and crossed off.

mublemind has gotten 2 cheers on this goal.
