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.

Tiny, little insignificant things.

Yup, yup. I’ve been thinking about this goal latley, and I figure I should start small until I’m really able to pass it forward.
Last Friday a girl dropped some lipgloss and was walking away, so I picked it up, catched up to her and returned it.
That same day I was on the school bus when I saw a familiar face walking past the bus than I knew he should be riding. So I got off the bus, and hollard his name, he said, “thanks Sue. ” and smiled as he looked for a seat.
all the school busses look alike, except for a number on the side, but sometimes it changes and others it’s not the same driver so it’s a bit tough to keep track and get on the right bus. a couple of weeks ago, someone did the same for me, and thanks to them i didn’t miss my bus.
i didn’t even know this person, but i guess that’s the cool thing about paying it forward. helping the unexpected. life is good. :)
