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.

get another tattoo

I’m actually thinking that I want to cover up my old tattoo. At the time I got it really meant something to me, but now alot of things have changed and I think it’s time to move on completely. I was thinking about what I want to get and I can’t decide between a pot of gold with a rainbow and shamrocks, or possibly a pirate flag. I’m definately getting the pirate flag at some point just maybe not to cover up my old tattoo.

buy myself a diamond ring

I know it sounds silly but to me a it’s a statement of independance. If I buy it for myself it won’t ever matter if no one else buys one for me. Anything I really want in life I should be able to do for myself and not need someone else.

Be a tourist in my own city

There are a million things to do in San Diego and I find myself doing the same things all the time. San Diego is one of the most beauitiful cities in the US and I don’t think I enjoy that enough.
