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.

work on a fishing boat
I've kinda done this

I worked on a barge, processing ship, and catcher processor. I had a lot of fun and saw many places while working in Alaska, but I want to be a fisherman. I was offered a job to work on a salmon fishing boat in The Prince William Sound, but it didn’t quite go through. But I haven’t lost hope yet, I have a book with many addresses and phone numbers to many fishing company’s and captains that operate in Alaska.

watch the iditarod

While visiting family in Alaska, I found out I’m realated to Joe Remington (the guy who started the Iditarod) he is my third cousin. Because of this I think it would be quite an experience to watch the event. Also it’s a family business, so I’m related to alot of people that are involed in the race.

Beat my depression
I beat my depression

I’ve been depressed my whole life, and have tried to kill myself since I was 9 years old. I’m now 24 years old and the last time I tried something was four days before my 21st birthday. After going to the hospital, I was taken to Yuba-Sutter Mental health for a week or two. It marked the second time I’d been there. When I got home I decided I no longer wanted to hurt myself, and I didn’t want to live with the pain from depression anymore. So I wrote a poem that I dedicated to everybody whose ever had sucidal tendencies. I named it “Why Say Goodbye And Be Set Free To Fly?” Now whenever I think of doing something to myself, I just read the poem, and and the thoughts of depression go away immediately. Since writing my poem I have only had two episodes. Other then that I now live my life extremely happy, depression free. (I’m sorry I will not put my poem up on the internet, do too fear of getting it stolen) But I plan on getting it published soon, so it will help you also.
