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.

10 years of freedom

10 years of soberness – and freedom – behind. Would recommend to anyone in search for better quality of life. :-)

share my faith with others
A vision, not a goal actually

I’m such a selfish person :-[ that this will never become everyday reality to me. I really would like to share what I’ve experienced in my life – that I’ve come from the darkness, from great sorrow, and now travelling heavenwards… slowly, gradually, day by day. That’s a miracle. Life is fantastic. But, as said, I’m too selfish to have this as a ‘goal’ I’ll accomplish someday. I’m just having it here as a reminder, to help myself to keep in mind what should be the most important thing here in ‘pre-life’. And praying strength and words from the Almighty Father…

establish a tea room

It’s so sad that there is no tearoom in Helsinki yet. I just love them… in Paris especially. In Stockholm there is one very nice too, in the Old Town – the first one in Sweden. When do we get that first one in Helsinki? Hmmm, probably not much business potential in the long term (we are the coffee nation) but would be worth trying. My dream would be to have enough money & time to do that. Just a dream, currently…
