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.

Work on my house
lots of projects

We have a new house, and its more like a new shell. There are lots of things we could do to improve the place and its value. I want to stop procrastinating and get some of it done.

keep in regular contact with my brother
miss my brother a lot

I miss my brother a ton- he is like my best friend. we moved away a few years ago, and we don’t talk as much as we used to. I want to make sure we stay close, and keep in good contact.

lose more weight
wish me luck and success!!

I lost my momentum, and want to get back on track. I am at 55 pds lost- but was at almost 65. I have started slacking, and don’t want to go back to my old weight. I need to lose another 40 pounds to be at a healthy BMI and weight for my height and frame. Wish me luck!
