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.

Quote 190 - Van Gogh

“I often think that the night is more alive and more richly colored than the day.”



Quote 189 - Mark Twain

“It is curious that physical courage should be so common in the world and moral courage so rare.”



Quote 188 - Edgar Allen Poe

“Those who dream by day are cognizant of many things which escape those who dream only by night.”



Quote 187 - Emerson

“The thing done avails, and not what is said about it.”



Quote 186 -Longfellow

“We judge ourselves by what we feel capable of doing, while others judge us by what we have already done.”



Quote 185 - Robert Browning

“What I aspired to be and was not, comforts me.”



Quote 184 - Joan Didion

“The impulse to write things down is a peculiarly compulsive one, inexplicable to those who do not share it, useful only accidentally, only secondarily in the way that any compulsion tries to justify itself…Keepers of private notebooks are a different breed altogether, lonely and resistant re-arrangers of things, anxious malcontents, children afflicted apparently at birth with some presentiment of loss.”

I like this one because I’m constantly keeping journals, writing on websites like this one, and writing random stuff on my computer about how I feel about things. I actually found this quote while reading a notebook I kept during my freshman year at college (about 15 yrs ago).



Quote 183 - Author Unknown

When the world says, “Give up,”
Hope whispers, “Try it one more time.”
~Author Unknown



Quote 182 - Epicurus

“We must, therefore, pursue the things that make for happiness, seeing that when happiness is present, we have everything; but when it is absent, we do everything to possess it.”



Quote 181 - Vincent Van Gogh

“For my part I know nothing with any certainty, but the sight of the stars makes me dream.”
