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.

Learn Spanish

anyone who hasn’t done this yet- do it! it’s pretty much the unofficial 2nd universal language other than English. i’ve been learning since 7th grade, and it’s my major in uni. If you have Spanish-speaking friends, get them to practice with you (i.e. try to speak only Spanish for the day). When i go on missions trips, it’s a great asset to have.

For those who want to learn quickly and efficiently, I recommend Rosetta Stone. The CIA use it! :)

Grow in Christ (read all 2 entries…)
so out of my element.

i feel so out of place here…it’s nothing like i thought it would be. it’s consequently affecting my schoolwork, which sucks. someone once said, “es el tonto que no puede volver al lugar de su felicidad pasada.”

i need to get back to that place.

stop holding grudges
let's hug it out.

staying angry doesn’t help me, or the people around me. maybe i’ll forgive that person someday, but for now, i’ve gotta accept the fact that everything happens for a reason.
