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.

shoot a gun
Everyone should try this at least once...

There is more respect for a gun gained in the 20 seconds after shooting one than there is in a lifetime of hearing about them from your parents, teachers, and friends.

My father taught us very young how to hold, shoot, and clean a gun. Our family hunted on the farm each fall, and we learned to “clean” and process deer meat to eat. As a young child, in the 70’s I was one of the few that didn’t see Bambi and cry, I touched his mother, asked why, and was answered.



whitewater rafting
The week before I got married!!

My fiance and I lead a group of 30 people on a whitewater rafting trip! Yes, I did fall overboard. Yes, it was scary as hell! Yes, it was soooo worth it!!
