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.

fall in love with the right person
i know that line might be cliche but...

people say that there is no such thing as the “person” only two persons who make things right… or two people who are right for each other… but, heck, whatever. i know it’s foolish to believe in soulmates and stuff like that but wouldn’t it be fun and magical to meet and fall for the right person?

definitely worth doing!!!

yeah, definitely worth doing!!! it’s kinda addictive actually, hehehe

be my own boss
my business,my pleasure

i’d give anything to own my time, money, and business. i don’t like sucking up to people and having to try to please them and earning some fixed amount by going to the office at regular hours. it’s dull! i wanna be my own boss so that if i wanna earn more, i’ll work more. and if i wanna rest, then no one can stop me

See all entries ...
