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.

sleep under the stars
...i love the outdoors...

“i wanna touch the earth, i wanna break it in my hands, i wanna grow something wild and unruly. i wanna sleep on the hard ground in the comfort of your arms… i wanna look at the horizon and not see a building standing tall, it sounds so good to me…i wanna be the only one for miles and miles – except for maybe you and your simple smile…”

sleeping under the stars is great i’ve done it on the beach in OBX, north carolina, on a beach just south of durban, south africa, on a boat on the whitsundays and out in the desert in alice springs, australia. oh and of course not to mention many times camping in a tent – but really it’s better out in the open…



get a laptop
i love it!

def worth doing
