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.

spread the story about Gille Legacy

Gille Legacy was born with Cerebral Palsy and is paralyzed from the neck down. His mother was going to die during his birth so in order to save her (she had several other children), the doctor broke his shoulder and squeezed his head to get him out. He immediately went stiff paralyzed. He was expected to die right away. Gille was not allowed outside for 35 years because his father was ashamed of him. He was not given a wheelchair for 22 years. He scooted on his back to get around and taught himself math by laying on the bathroom floor, counting the ceiling tiles. Gille is now married to an amazing woman and sells his paintings that he paints with the tip of his nose! His wife, Sandi takes care of him full time. He supports the two of them without any government assistance. This couple is an incredible story of determination, perseverence, and love. They deserve to have their story told. I believe spreading their word will not only benefit the two of them, but will touch many people’s hearts as well.
