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.

I’ve always been interested in the sky, the stars, the planets, and all of the rest of the universe. I love stargazing but my front and back lawn aren’t good enough for me. Plus I want to find a place higher up in the atmosphere to have a better view of it all.

I want to learn how to play the ukulele or guitar.

learn how to dance
I want to learn how to dance.

Recently I helped backstage at my friends performance and there were a lot of different styles of dance there and they all looked so interesting! A lot of my friends dance and when they do it it seems like the have so much fun and they meet and become friends with a lot of new and amazing people. I’ve always wanted to learn how to dance but I’ve never had this much motivation for it. First step, exercise/yoga to get more flexible. :)
