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.

Had a child instead

I had set a goal of June 18th to get out of debt. While we are almost there, our child was born in May and so we are making sure we can provide for him. We are still on track to get out of debt, just not as early as June.

Baby was born

Well, our son came 5 weeks early, but he came and we are settling into life as parents. He is so little!! I still don’t feel 100% comfortable handling him, but thank goodness my wife/his mom does! I can’t wait to watch him grow.

join an investment club

While I don’t have a lot to invest, I would like to join a club to discuss different investments, and maybe even different stocks. By having to defend a buy of a certain stock, or a sell, would make me a better investor. Also, it would go towards my other goal of meeting more people.
