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.

go on a road trip with no predetermined destination
It may have been long ago...

... but jumping in the car one day and heading straight south with no earthly idea where I would end up is what allowed me to find the one and only place that has ever endeared me enough to call “home”—Galveston, Texas.

get my credit out of the dumpster
It's not that...

it affects me a whole hell of a lot right now. I use my debit card for everything and don’t have any desire to finance anything right now. I just… think maybe it could be better.

win money
I always wanted to know what it would be like to just 'WIN' some money...

...and now I finally do! I won $1875 on a 2×3x slot machine at a casino! It was the wildest thing ever and SO MUCH FUUUUUUNNNN!!! :)

See all entries ...
