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.

sell my house

It’s been on the market a couple of months. Everyone who sees it is interested in it, but they have each had a reason so far as to why they couldn’t do it. We haven’t had very many showings due to the bad market in the area. I just really hope it sells soon!

spend more time with my husband

we’re both so busy.. but he really deserves it. He’s such an amazing man, and husband.

Read more books

I don’t have a specific goal, here. I just want to make sure I’m reading more than I have been over the past few years. Reading because I WANT to. I recently bought some used books at an annual library book sale, and I hope to get through all of those books before next years! I have already read two and a half… and it’s only been a month. That’s really good for me!
