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.

Pay my truck off within a year
Nissan Frontier

Oh how I love my truck!! Hopefully, by this date next year, I can take my title from the bank and put it in my own hands!!

Become a United States Marine
Semper Fi

OOOORAH!! The best decision of my life. I learned lessons on life that I couldn’t have learned anywhere else.

find true love

I found her in 4th grade, we were best friends until we started dating during our senior year of high school (02-03) and we’re still together, soulmates.

Donate blood
Save a Life

I donated for the first time, by force, I was in boot camp. It makes your body feel good though, I kept doing it, now I can’t because of medical conditions, but it’s worth it to know that you just saved someone’s life.

Quit thinking I think too much and embrace my thought process
Not a bad thought

It was refreshing to see all of these entries from people who think, alot, alot more than most people think. It makes me feel like maybe my many, many thoughts are gold in my own right. anywho, I think I’m gonna go think about this whole thinking thing. :)

Get rid of junk that I don't need/use
Go away junk

I tell myself every week, “I’m gonna go through that box of stuff”, or “I swear, tomorrow, I’m gonna go down to the storage shed and clean it out.” Yet, it doesn’t get done, this goes along with I WANT TO STOP PROCRASTINATING SO MUCH!!!

tell someone I love them
My girl

I tell her everyday that she is very loved!!!! She is!!
