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.

play apples to apples

Completely fun game, but even more fun when you don’t have to play with a bunch of kids that don’t even understand most of the references, but some of their guesses are hilarious.

be in love (and be loved in return) every day for the rest of my life

Ok, so a goal completely worth doing, but first I have to love me, cuz right this second, that aint working for me.
Anyone have any bright ideas to accomplish that goal?

learn how to do cartwheels

I always wanted to be cute and small and athletic, I wound up being 5’ 7 3/4’ tall and weigh too much, so I never did learn to do a cartwheel, so thats my next “if I’m gonna be stupid anyway it might as well be with something I wanna do” goal.
It does get easier dieting and losing weight right?
