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.

strengthen my relationship with God

I finally let go of all of my pride and became willing to open up to people about my struggles. It sucked, but it was so worth it!

Write 100 little things that make me happy (read all 2 entries…)

Well, I’m in the process of doing it (I’ve almost got 100) and I know it sounds cheesy but it’s making me feel good doing it. I haven’t told anyone what I’m doing either but it’s making me feel happier!

I always see people say stuff like that, but I never though I would actually say it sometime.

Lovin it!

find a church that feel right to me

My current church is just too old school. It’s getting better and I know God put me here for a reason, but I just need somewhere more contemporary.

remember my dad at least once a day

I do this anyway and even though there’s a lot of pain, I wouldn’t want to forget him.

floss my teeth

Probs not gonna happen

be a better father than my father was

He decided alcohol was more important than raising me and my little brother.

I can do this!

I’m gonna try to do this over the course of this week.

I’m just gonna carry around a notepad.

go on a road trip with no predetermined destination
Some day...

I’ll get there…. where ever there is!

watch every episode of lost
It took a while

This summer I just sat down and decided I would do it! Most of the episodes were on Hulu but I had to watch the last season on some ghetto, illegal website! ahaha but it was totally worth it and I hadn’t ever seen an episode before this!
