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 a tattoo that has a significant meaning
best $ I ever spent

I have a tat of a sacred heart on the small of my back. I spent a lot of time considering it, living with the design in a place where I could see it all the time, and researching an artist I was comfortable with. I’m so happy with the tattoo…and my fiance thinks it’s very sexy. A nice plus.

Fall in love
breath of life

Ah, love. It fills life with joy and changes perspectives on everything. My fiance brightens even the most frustrating day for me. All of a sudden, I want to be a better person, less selfish, more loving, kinder. I see life as though it were new. The future no longer scares me, but excites me. I have a partner, someone I will give to 100% and who will give to me 100% and everything seems possible, at our fingertips. The mundane seems extraordinary because it’s been touched by love and security and companionship. To those “looking for love”, stop the search and you will find it.

get an apple ibook

I love my ibook! Never unhappy with it. No freebie for me, but a satisfactory result of hard work and generosity of others (and credit).

get right with God

because life for lived for myself is getting old…because I’m out of touch with my spirit when I’m out of touch with the spirit of the Creator…because my loved ones suffer when I am so self absorbed…
