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 Read Aloud Handbook, The Wonderful Wizard of Oz, The Marvelous Land of Oz, Game of Thrones, Clash of Kings, Storm of Swords, A Feast for Crows, A Dance with Dragons, By the Sword, Jurassic Park, The Lost World, and The Martian.

I finished The Martian a day or so ago (it was a terrific book) and I’m currently working on Mindset and another nonfiction called Drawing on the Right Side of the Brain.

I understand that 43things is ending and I am sad to see it go. It has been fun setting goals these past few years. While this will likely be my last update for 43things, let me say that I’m confident that I will reach this goal, and hopeful that I will meet many of my others. Thanks 43 for all your help in getting me focused!

Good luck to everyone with your future goals!

I finished up The Lost World today, and I’m now working on another nonfiction: Mindset. The Martian will be the following read and I’m thinking about finishing up the goal with Millennium trilogy by Stieg Larsson.
