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.

Learn a form of kung fu/judo/etc
Judo is best!

Judo has helped me a great deal. You are certainly not wasting your time learning break-falls for three months. I’m a fall down drunk kind of guy, and I tell you what, once I got used to falling properly on instinct through countless repetitions, I haven’t hurt myself since!

Bowl over 200 (read all 3 entries…)
246... yeah, in practice

I rocked it hardcore the other day. I would’ve had a 266 but I guttered my second ball in the tenth. I was fuming!! But I followed with another strike. Sadly, this was just in practice. My highest league score is a 192, so until I get that 200 (maybe tonight) I won’t be satisfied.

Get paid to be me
Who am I to get paid for being me?

No one will ever get paid to simply exist. I need to find out who I am and what I can do in the scope of just being me that will get me money. Writing seems to be the most logical solution, or some other form of art. If you are expressing yourself, you’re being yourself or manifesting yourself, am I right? If I can do this well enough, I should be able to get paid for it.
