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.

go camping again
getting ready, but having some set backs.

I got all my supplies together, and good a really good spot near the water in the valley between two mountains. theres great opportunities for hiking, fishing, swimming, rock collecting, hackeysack, a warm fire, and star gazing, but there have been mountain lion sightings. fml.

find someone to spend the rest of my life with

its definitely easier to find that person than it is to keep them, just appreciate what you have when you get what you want, and never take it for granted.

move out

one key piece of advice: make a budget and stick to it! make sure it includes saving money as well as bills and money to have fun, it can be a struggle, but is definitely worth it, even if you don’t succeed at least you’ll know what to do differently next time.

learn to play guitar
found a teacher...

starting with the basics, I know how to play a chord now. =)

Earn forgiveness
you can't change the past

lets face it everyone makes mistakes, unfortunately sometimes the consequences are extremely undesirable, and we must live with this. I may not be able to change my past or correct my mistakes, but I find comfort in the lessons I’ve learned from some of my poor decisions, for I will not make the same mistakes in the future. I may stumble and fall along the way, but I’ll keep picking myself back up. every fast is a new day and therefore an opportunity for me to keep moving forward, not dwelling on the past.
