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 Buddhist
Totally not worth it

I read a lot, and really, there are much more rational approach to the world. Like secular humanism. I still believe in some Buddhist principals, as i still believe in some Christian principles.

forgive my mom
She can't appologise for not protecting me...

But I have to find a way to work through it, and forgive her for not protecting me.

Buy a house for my parents
Not for all the right reasons but...

It is one of my goals to buy my mom a house. Not to pay her back, and not to live near her- just so I don’t feel guilty and so I know she is safe and doesn’t have to depend on some stupid guy for money.
