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.

Let go of the past (read all 3 entries…)
Finally an episode of my life over!

It took me a year to let go and now that I have I couldn’t be happier in my life! I feel like a ray of sunshine has entered into my life…I can breath easier and I feel better…and in the wierdest of ways destiny has taken over…I didn’t believe it at first but life works in mysterious ways…

Read all the books in my "must read" pile (read all 2 entries…)
awesome books!

I’ve read Paulo Coelho’s the Zahir and Alchemist and Mitch Albom’s the Five People You Meet in Heaven…recommend it to all! Life changing books about following your dreams and love…

Stop being depressed
so shocking...

What kind of world do we live in? I mean really are there any amount of people out there who really care? From my experience all I have to say is that all people do is use you and take advantage of you. They are all hypocrites…its all a show…whether in your job, life or whatever…they all get caught up in their own miserable lives…can u blame me for being depressed…the guy who so-called “professed his love for me” ended up backstabbing me when I needed the most help…my best friend changed once she started working…people at work are just acquaintances and nothing more…competing for a raise and ready to pounce and kill you once they get the go-ahead…people are such animals…i feel like my whole life is a waste…im not getting anywhere…i have noone to stand by me…im going insane because of no social contact…other than my sister or mother…what can i do? i have no one…
