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.

fire a gun in a shooting range
AK-47 & M16

In Vietnam, they have this tourist attraction called the Cu Chi Tunnels – underground tunnels used by Vietnamese Guerrila troops to combat American soldiers. They had a shooting range there which allowed you to fire various weapons (a machine gun, an AK47, M16, etc) and man, it was awesome. Ahhhhh the beauty of being in an Asian country, there aren’t as many rules. I didn’t even have to sign a waiver or put on safety gear. I just bought the bullets (expensive, btw) and pulled the trigger. So if you ever find yourself in Saigon, visit the tunnels and make sure you save money for the gun range. Prepare to have your ears ring afterwards cuz the headphones/earplugs they give you are designed for listening to music not blocking out the sound of a military combat weapon.

learn how to park my car
I can drive places..

But I don’t know what to do with my car when I get to my destination. I’m too scared to park for fear I’ll hit something.
