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.

Get on a Plane and do it!

Go to Paris, i promise you it will change your life. There is something magical about the city, that changes you.
and you can do it on a budget. I went for 2 weeks on 2 thousand dollars including flights.

If you go you have to go to versailles

stop drinking pop
I feel so much better

I gave up pop after having a rather disgusting bottle of green fanta in thailand. For some reason that one drink has made me feel so much better. At first it was a bit hard, but now i feel so much better. I read that if you drink a can of pop a day you can gain 15 pounds in year :S It has been three monthes since i stopped and it has been well worth it!

jump off a cliff
Scary, very scary

I jumped of a thirty (ish) foot cliff this weekend, and it was one of the scaryiest things ive done lately. I know thirty feet isnt that high but when youre sitting on the edge of cliff thinking about jumping it is scary, very scary. But in the second that you leap of the edge you get this amazing rush that makes the whole experience so great. Try it, you won’t be disapointed.
