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.

write a book
on the way

I have an idea, a premise and an opening.

I have written a few chapters but they are incomplete thoughts, as they stand right now.

There are a few shining moments but there is much work to be done.

A year ago I was fired up…but then life happened and I have stalled. My book sits unfinished in my computer.

I’m giving myself a deadline of three years to finish researching and writing my book.

It will remain a secret and it will be successful… someday.

Run around town in a bear suit

There is no other way to describe this goal other than completely awesome.

do more yoga

I’m getting addicted to Vinyasa and feel incomplete without it. But I want it more and I want to improve.
For now, I go twice a week…
