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.

Hello everybody!

It is travelling which makes me really happy. I want to spend even more time on that.

I’ve chosen this goal and joined the group of 43things travelers to motivate myself and keep a record of my travels. However, “Travel” is very vague and generic term so I would like to create my own sub-goals that I will update regularly (ideally, once a week).

My current goal (goal #1) is:
I want to visit 25 interesting places in London.

Here is the one basic rule:
When I write ‘to visit’ I mean to really learn that place, get into it, try it, taste it or be somehow engaged, spend some time in that place, find out more about its history etc. Taking picture is not enough:)

Let’s start!

So far I have visited one place in London which I find interesting:
1) Museum of Science

I have seen many more but as I wrote – seeing is not enough:)

This weekend hopefully will add something new to the list:)

Be more efficient when working (read all 6 entries…)

Well, I just changed the job:)

My problems were caused mainly by lack of motivation and different types of distractions in my previous job.

Now I feel much better,

help others
Inspire me!:)

What is your favourite way of helping others?
