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.

I love my Ipod. It sleeps with me, sooths me, makes me happy, and rocks my world. I have Ipod socks and have to hide it from the kids.

In the fresh air. Never done it.

Laughter is soo good for us.

stop taking anti-depressants

Three years of Effexor. I’d like not to rely on them. Or at least reduce the dose.

stop biting my nails

would take a miracle though. I’ve bit them since I was little and when I get stressed I bite them more. I’d love nice nails and hands though. Hmph I have this theory that nail biters are more intelligent, and I’m sticking to that theory.

take the kids to disney

After moving house and being ill I promised the kids I’d take them to Eurodisney and we did it Jan 9th. They loved it.

read books without skipping and reading the end pages first
