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.

learn how to drive stick
Love it.

Learning to drive stick for me was a necessity, and the first time to tried to learn my dad yelled the whole time. Haha. You definitely need to have someone teach you that has patience. I had a friend reattempt with me a couple years later. He took me to a hs parking lot with my dads truck, and after a very rocky start and a sore neck from stalling out, I now would never go back. Dont fear if youre a lefty. Yes, its harder to get used to, but I managed. Just take your time, and have fun with it.

eat a philly cheesesteak IN philly.
Do it.

Although there are a few places in Jersey that are probably better, if you have the opportunity it’s totally worth it. Try Pats and Genos(I dont even like whiz and yet loved it on the steak), but my personal fav is Tony Lukes on Oregon Ave. The roast pork with provelone is awesome too.
