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.

drive our hearse again
freddie mae

my husband and i bought a 77 cadillac hearse this past winter. she has been our dream car since we were both kids. her name is freddie mae after the little old lady we bought her from. well famous, my husband, blew a rod and now she just sits there, waiting for her new motor. she will soon be finished sometime in june, so it wont be too long until we will be on the road again! i miss her. :(

To live instead of exist

if i were to die right now, or tomorrow, and i could look back and see what i have really done with my life, im not so sure that i would like what i would see. the good thing is that i HAVE chosen to exist, but thats not good enough, what i really want to do is be able to look back and say, “now that was what you call living!”

learn to like myself
i have to stop putting myself down

im not sure that some of my goals can be accomplished unless i learn to like, love, whatever, myself…me and “myself” are not friends at all right now! so, you wanna be friends?
