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.

Mango Languages

My mom told me about a site to learn foreign languages. I’ve only used it a couple of days so far, but I really like it. It’s an easy way to get started in learning a foreign language. Hopefully I can keep practicing a little bit each day.

online dating

I’m signed up for a dating site and my goal this summer is to meet up with a female to truly explore the extent of my sexuality. My mini goal is to message several individuals at one time in order to maximize my chances.

another internship

Although I got news of this several months ago, I have received an internship in which I will be speaking Spanish most of the time. Hopefully. Nevertheless, this should help me in my goal of becoming fluent in Spanish!
