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.

educate myself
hooked on phonics, it worked for me

If i could do nothing but learn all day, and apply that to something, i would. When doing what I learned, helped someone else, it feels great, its a pride thing. give me money so i can go learn to play the piano, or learn to build a house, or design a new race car chassis. you get the point

find love
if im living in the dark, i dont want to be right, and if this is wrong, i dont want to be right

that the feeling of love, even if it hurts, or is making you, not you, you still want it. and even when you get over that emotion for that someone or something, you still have it for someone else, or something else. Ill never stop loving, it feels too good, even if it is momentary, even if it only lasts a second, or for years, I want it now, and than later. gimme love !!

Quit Smoking
mmmm tar.

yea, if i could go back the day I was 13 or 14 and I was riding my bike, and i ran over a little paper bag, and stopped to see what was in it, to find a few packs of generic cigarettes. Man I would have slapped the shit out of myself, and said, man, if you try that your gonnna like it, and its gonna hurt you. I wish i could have had an experience that would have kept me from ever trying a cigarette. I have quit a few times, but i always go back when times get rough. ahh Ill do it one day.
