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.

Have a baby

After having a baby I realise how personal this is for each person. It is very fragile and passes quickly like the sweetest dream. Just enjoy it.

sleep on a park bench
Not in Sinaapore!

Feel asleep on a park bench in Singapore, lots of strange looks when I woke up and people walking to the other side of the path. Was told later that it is illegal, so pick you park bench carefully.

Eat healthly
Enjoy Food.

I was a junk food addict and thought I would never change. Went to California last year and the good food thing really kicked in. Lots of fresh food cheap. Decided to make the change and stuck to it. Feel great and my sense of taste has changed – don’t think I could go back but never say never.

Best of luck
