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.

love myself better
Because I shouldn't be a hater!

That’s why. A hater of yourself. Because you shouldn’t be your own worst enemy. You can’t get away! You can’t avoid or hide from your enemy! The only way you can deal with it is just to confront him head on. But don’t beat him up! I tried. It doesn’t work!

Raft down the Mississippi just like Huckleberry Finn
Everyone wanted to be just like Huck Finn!

At least I did…and still do! It would be great to experience that freedom, floating down the river lazily on a raft letting the current take you wherever! Man, would be that nice! But perhaps dangerous, because I could run into a river barge or some sort of steamboat casino! And did you ever see the pollution cluttering that river? DIS-gusting! But I still wanna do it! Just because

Build A Treehouse Like Swiss Family Robinson
I just think it would be sooo cool!

I just remember watching this movie going “Oh my god! How lucky that family is!” Because they seem to be a close family that still loved to live and have fun, without any worries even though they were trapped on an island. To me, it’s a dream house!
