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.

Personal Challenge!
3 more days

Most of the time this goal is cathartic.

I’ve challenged myself, I’m going to make a list of people and call them one by one, until my deadline July 21.

I may go months with out calling certain people, but when I do call it’s like “hey I remember talking to you was really fun.”

Maybe it’s because they have moved out of town, don’t know.

I've discovered email!

I’ve been emailing my acquaintances more often. The phone will really help to bring them closed, I suspect.


I called on an old work friend today.

I’m glad I did it. We spoke like friends. :)
I’m happy I called to check on him.

So I'm taking the first steps.

Called three of my friends today.
I even got a call from a long lost friend.
I called a new friend up, it was good, a little rough, I need to do this more often!

Now just need to call M., but what will we say?

Well, it was a good thing to do. :)
