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.

28th june 2010

I went to the office early today.. I saw lot of new joinees and they were all so eager to join this Company.. It seemed to me that they were all freshly college pass outs and they were so happy and confident.. This reminded me of myself when i joined a software firm some 4 years back.. I thought about myself and how things have changed in my life .. i have learned a lot from my experiences and i am happy with how my life has treated me so far…
I just thought about my older day s and i smiled….


I went out of town to a quiet place with my friends… long drive and talking to friends was of course good but i was looking for something that would make me smile from within and i didn’t want thAt to come from my friends… I observed hills and waterfalls and simple people who were selling stuffs on the roadside. I felt happy for myself and i thought i was lucky to have a job which gives me money to enjoy these little things in life ..

High time i stop cribbing and start realising that i am blessed and lucky to have almost everything in my life—- family , friends , job..

I tool this picture when i was returning back and i wanted to capture the feeling that i was going through at that point of time…
which made me just “happy” :)
