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.

Quit Smoking
18 days now

It’s about the 4th time I quit…Have quit for a year and a half, 6 months, 4 months and hopefully this is the last time!!!

drink absinthe
This is funny

So funny there would be a goal to drink absinthe. I come from France and well, I prefer pastis I must say =).
I’ve had absinthe, pure or diluted, not bad but definitely not my fav’ ;-)

Learn to Salsa
Need to learn formally

I’ve been dancing my soul out for the last 5 months but without ever taking classes. I must thank my very patient dance partners who have taught me a lot over the weeks :-)
But I still feel like I need to polish and perfection my style so well I guess I will finally go learn “for real” lol

See all entries ...
