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.

get a job and keep it (read all 2 entries…)

well, I got a job. I start tomorrow.

go to the park, the beach, get out of the city more.

I’m from arizona, but now live in a densly populated county in florida. I understand the importance of leaving town, going up that hill, and suddenly human civilization is so small and over shadowed, by the beauty and wonder of nature. I feel like people are from two worlds. Our purpose lies within the people world, but our souls must touch with the spiritual world, a place where you put your intelect on hold and think and concentrate in a medium that has no words or human descriptives. Going to a quite place where its just you the sky and the other beings in nature, where pavements and roads don’t exist or have any meaning. it’s just you completely absorbed in the surroundings of nature and the feeling of Gods presence, without being aware of ones own self in relation to the world. Every now and then I need to go for a hike, or a walk, or stroll down the beach, this leaves me with a feeling of adjustment, repaired, and spritualy whole again, to brace the world again.

Fall in love

love is a gift-and it makes life so much sweeter and meaningful.
I don’t feel entitled, I can see that not everyone finds love…it’s just on my wish list in life, but not part of the plan, kind of like winning the lottery-only I hope I have much better odds with love!
