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.

become a better cook

I started out just doing breakfast- nowI am okay at breakfast- did not burn anything down

Pay off my house in seven years
This one is major

As I approach the big 4-0….I have been blessed to be in a 13 year committed relationship and realize how great it would be to pay this off by 47-48….

we need to buy other property- only one life to live

snowboard as much as possible

Not only have I had the ability to do this- but I have put together a snowboarding club at our school so that others can enjoy snowboarding …

great sport

Have a beautiful Tulip garden

I planted thirty bulbs a week this fall and will continue to do so until November 1st…. can’t wait for the spring!

The key is to do a little every week- and to plany different kinds of plants…

Visit New Orleans again by 2008
This goal is now mandatory- and will be done sooner

I had not counted on the hurricane literally wiping out this great city- I will visit sometime in the next year- the economy of New Orleans needs support- Cafe Du Monde- some beignets and hickory coffee sounds good

Buy a condo in Vermont in 2008

I really started visiting Vermont three years ago- it is so amazingly beautiful- If I had grown up there- I never would have left it- you would have to be insane to do so- pure beauty- snowboarding- and country lanes where you are alone- awesome!

Visit San Francisco
My visit home

I am a native San Franciscan- but I had not visited for years…
I went back as an 11th aniversary gift- I would like to recommend a few places- Dinner (expensive but wonderful) SCOMAS on Fisherman’s Wharf- Not so expensive – Cioppino’s – At night- you must drop by the Buena Vista and have an Irish Coffee- it is a San Franciscan tradition- The best time to take the Cable Car is anytime before 9:30 AM….....In Golden Gate Park- make sure that you visit the arboretum and the Japanese Tea Garden- If you exit the back of the Japanese Tea Garden- you will find a path that will lead you up a hill to Stow Lake- rent a boat for a couple of hours- rest your legs- then rent a mountain bike behind the boat house….Have them point out the direction to the beach- it is a 30 minute ride if you are in great shape- 50 minutes if you suck wind- at the end- take pictures and have a wonderful beer at the Beach Chalet
