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.

go spelunking

It was really intense. You might want to make sure you are fit and have adequite upper body strength before you go. I am very weak in my arms and had some trouble with some of the climbing. It was totally worth it though. It was so weird. It was the closest thing to a life-threatening experience i have ever had. There were times when it was like, “if i don’t do this right i am going to die” I don’t know if i would do it again, maybe. It was definitely an experience i am glad i had.

stop procrastinating

I think this one goes straight to number 1. If i wasnt procrastinating i wouldn’t even be on this website and i would be making conversation in korean while fixing my vegan dinner.

explore the world

exploring the world sounds like the coolest thing you could ever do with your life!
