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.

one of the most beautiful places on the earth. Next time I am going to cruise the islands for 7 days

learn how to surf
hanging very loose

Just got back from Hawaii where I took a lesson. I finally got up on the board and it was like I conquered the world. Tried to surf in Australia, but just got a mouth full of salt water. Now I am forever a surfer!

learn to juggle well
Metaphor for life

while you can only focus on one thing at a time there is great enjoyment in keeping a lot of things going.

go on vacation by myself
Went to Australia

It was one of the best experiences of my life. I am my best friend and so we both wanted to do the same things!

Why This?

Someone had enough vision and persistance to finish something. Who cares if it is perceived as bad. A bad movie made, is better than a great movie still in your head.
