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.

Stay Vegetarian

Over the past year I have been on and off vegetarianism but I really want to stick to it this time. I feel so much better when I stick with it!

fight the urge to run when things get difficult
Ready to Run

I have always been a runner. I can’t count all the times I have run away. It almost comforting to know that there are other people out there who have done the same thing. One thing I have learned is that a change of location won’t change who you are.

Not hate my coworkers

I love my job for the most part but I am finding that people here are so consumed with gossip and other petty things that they can’t get past it. For a long time I thought there was something wrong with me that made me feel left out but honestly I am starting to feel bad for them. I am 26, I hope that when I am staring down 40 I will have more of a life than some of my co-workers.
