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.

rebuild my relationship with God

Not having a good relationship with God has created a whole new set of problems, but at the same time I don’t know if I trust him enough to start a relationship with him. So I’m giving this next month a trial run. From April 1 to May 1, I am going to go to church every Sunday and Wednesday, unless something comes up, read my Bible daily and see what happens. You never know, maybe I’ll expierence one of these miracles everyone else seems to believe in so much and that I used too…

Either make it or end it

Its always hard to make tough decisions because of this I always find myself in an awful situation of undecidedness. I choose to “man up” and figure out what I wanted and ended it. If you’re not willing to make things work than its time to move on

Learn to play the cello (read all 2 entries…)

I have been taking cello lessons for the past two months and I love it! It’s definetly a challenge but well worth it!
