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.

Appreciate achievements (rather than muse on missed chances)

I just realized that I have been doing this on and off for the last month. I have decided in this very moment as I look over my goals that this is completed. In the last 2 years I:

Ended a relationship I wasn’t happy in.
Started a relationship with someone who is very special to me.
I took 2 months away from that relationship to teach them and myself that I am worth it.
I graduated college (first to graduate with bachelors from my family).
I moved into a beautiful apartment with my best friend.
I started a job with the hospital I wanted, in the position that I wanted.
I lost 35 lbs, about 3.5 pant sizes.

I have so much more to do in life, but my god I have done a lot already! I have so much to be proud of and to appreciate.

be a vegetarian for a week

Mmm… This might be fun to try.
