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.

Shattered right elbow and three broken toes. Gravity is evil. sigh. Already in PT after surgical work and trying to get along with life. Hurting myself physically has really enabled me to heal mentally. You really can’t understand how amazing it is to do all the simple things in life (feed youself, walk to the store) until you are incapacitated. I CAN NOT wait until I am fully ambulatory again. I have a new lust for life. Remember to be thankful for what you do have and ALWAYS wear a helmet when riding your bike. (saved my life!) Out look good

Lose 30 pounds (read all 3 entries…)
comin off :)

10 months – and 10 lbs have come off. A little bit slower than I would have liked but its still happening. Plus I can fit into a pair of jeans I grew out of before! I think lots has to do with muscle gain. On the road and headed in the right direction. Out look good

be honest

So I would rather this section was ‘be more honest’ I have already made great personal strides in my life with the honesty issue… honestly! lol anyhow – I do find I have hang ups every now and then – especially concerning my finances and I have decided that to truly move forward in my life (as I am so determined to do… this site rocks!!) then I must be COMPLETELY HONEST in ALL aspects of my life. Especially with myself!! I have a financial advisor I am constantly trying to out-wit aka deceive by not being totally honest about where my money is going and what exactly I’m spending it on. I try to minimize it by saying it’s my money – or it’s only a couple hundred bucks – but for Christ’s sake – I’m the one who asked this person for help – they give me help and every time I try to be sneaky I’m only hurting myself and hindering the outcome I so deeply need/desire. buck stops here… pun intended
