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.

Figure out a way to make as much money but spend more time with my son.

Just went through a reorganization at work, after 8 years on the job. I’m a single mom and demands for travel have increased. I’m doing a completely different job but with the same intent.

Not that I’m opposed to some travel but too much begins to deteoriate my “life”... you know, the reason I work in the first place.

I miss my son when I have to do the 4 day business trips. Those used to be once every quarter, now, they are sometimes twice a month. I’ve begun to tell them “no” since they knew my situation before they sought me out for this job.

I want to find a way to make as much in salary to support me and my son, and stay home more often. I’m starting by saying “no” to travel more often.
