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.

So I will add this goal!!

take that last class (read all 2 entries…)
I'm so freakin' happy!!!

My class is finally being offered and I am so happy about it!! I have waited so long and for the right circumstances. I feel like everything is about to get a lot better!!!

I did this!!!

Skydiving was on my to do list since I was a kid and I did it a few years ago. It was great!! Make sure you go to a really reputable place. I went to Lake Elsinore here in California. The guys I jumped with were great. I did tandem since I was a beginner and the guy I jumped with had over 2000 jumps under his belt. The scariest thing about it was the ride up in the tiny little plane. You kinda felt like the plane was going to fall apart and you needed to jump to survive!! Oh…and the guy who crashed right before we got on the plane. But according to everyone he was fairly new at it and he did something you never should do by going over the tent we were all under. Everyone there said not to worry cuz the experienced guys know better than that. Have fun and good luck!!

See all entries ...
