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.

where daydreaming becomes miraculous confidence

Most of the things on my list add up to my desire. Rescuing bunnies, having developed poise, and getting my lip pierced really helped. There are so many other things I see on other people’s lists that I can do, which I take for granted.

For instance, I’m ambidextrous. That’s cool! Although a little confusing at times. I’m an exceptional tarot reader and birth chart interpreter. I’m becoming more aware of my options when it comes to grocery shopping for organic and fair-trade and free range foods.

Then there are things I wouldn’t add to this list. Like overly emotional goals… I hide them, if there are any. Then there are those many wishes for becoming fluent in 8 languages. And all the little things, the small ideas to implement over time, on a daily basis, those kind of changes. My list would balloon to hundreds of things, but they’re still things I want to do! And in some way, it affects my confidence to leave those things out – I suppose I could author more lists. I need to see how much I accomplish…
