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.

stop being a bitch

just realised that its my craziness and controlling that drives a wedge between me and the world, creating fear and mistrust and just plain pain and confusion. learning that i have these traits is depressing but knowledge and admission is part of the solution, learning to give up control and ask for help from my higher power is important nay vital. im not the boss a loving caring god is. and for that i am truly grateful

go to New York

After my granny died, my very kind sister lent me the fare to go and on my first day i went to harlem after the flight was delayed 10 hours taking off, slept well that night, next day walked from one end of central park to to the other,all the way to times square, and waited outside the theatre to see a play with Christopher Walken and Sam Rockwell in it, written by Martin McDonagh.I wasnt there more than five minutes when the side door opened , and Sam Rockwell came out with a friend, and then a black car pulls up and Christopher Walken gets out and walks past me. I didnt know whether to bow kneel, curtsey or throw up. It was brilliant my first 24 hours .And i never got mugged . ate tacos in the village, took the subway after midnight, and the free ferry and joined the New York library. My library card is my favourite souvenir. signed programme for A behanding in Spokane anyone?

find somewhere to live

cannot remember how long ive been looking for a place at least ten years now. always short term solutions turn out disastrous one way or another , time to grow up and put some roots down – but where? and now ive been her e a year . i decided to stop worrying and head to New york seeing as i didnt have anywhere to worry about paying rent on, and sort it out when i came back. I was back less than two weeks when i found this plsce. I reckon I owe NYC and my sister and my mum and brother and aunt and son and Dad a huge debt. |Thank you for helping me get to here. Love you love gus.
