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.

do something with my bedroom

My bedroom is the most boring place in my entire house. It is totally neglected. I go there to sleep and that’s it. It has white walls and no pictures and boxes piled up in the corner. And I’ve lived here for 5 months! I have got to paint in there or something. It’s really starting to bother me.

hang out on my patio (read all 2 entries…)
I did this ... twice!

The weather finally became perfect for a few days between the hot summer and the cold winter. I think if more weekend mornings with nice weather existed this wouldn’t even be an issue. Well, it was really nice when I did it! Hopefully I’ll get some more days like that!

Go to sleep earlier. (read all 3 entries…)
feels good!

I love the mornings now! I always thought I was a night person, but this earlier schedule is actually great. And being well rested makes all the difference in a happy life.

See all entries ...
