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.

spend more time outdoors

All you have to do is get a hobby, or go back to college. Even try to find a way to start your own business; that’ll keep you active and you will find yourself outdoors alot more often. Also, going out with friends or finding new friends helps.

find myself, know myself and then be myself
Discovering oneself

I know myself more now than I ever did. I think what helped is my confidence and my willingness to explore trying new things. Also, sit and think about what you want and say it out loud to yourself, even if it sounds silly or illegimate. As long as it’s legal, though (laughs).

not be depressed anymore

I have grown to be more content with my life. Once I discovered that once I stay dedicated to making life work for me rather than focusing on unfullfilled dreams, then I was willing to end my depression. Well, most of it anyway. To cure the rest of my depression, maybe winning the lottery or becoming a famous celebrity would help. :)
