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.

Sing at a karaoke bar (read all 2 entries…)
Work Karaoke Party

Recently my office had a Karaoke Party at a bar that specialises in that particular kind of torture/embarrasment… actually it wasn’t all that bad except I could not bring myself to get up and do it!!!
I instead became “that” person who gets everybody’s name and makes them choose a song and puts it in the queue to sing.
It was alot of fun but I am a little suprised and dissapointed that I didn’t have the guts for this one.

stop biting my fingernails (read all 3 entries…)

I was just scrolling through my goals after not having looked at them for a couple of months when I got this one and realised I was chewing on my thumb even as I read it!! I have bitten my nails for as long as I have had teeth and it is incredibly difficult to break the habit. Maybe this goal is unrealistic for me?
