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.

find a career I love

Nothing compares to doing a job you love. Some days work doesnt feel like work, it just feels like a part of my life and who I am.

stop smoking for good this time!
January 7th.

I’m well on my way.

Letters I'll never send...... (read all 3 entries…)

Sometimes I still can’t believe that you’re gone. I never knew that losing you would impact my life so much. I know that you are in a better place, but my heart misses you so bad. I’m glad that you aren’t in pain anymore and that your fight with addiction is finally over. I wish I could have been your drug and taken away all your pain. I regret the days that I didn’t call and tell you that I love you. It would only have taken a minute, and now those are moments that I’ll never get back. I still have your number in my phone, for some reason I cannot bring myself to delete it. Im sad that I didn’t get to spend more time with you when you were sober, although I will always treasure the time we had and never forget it. Speaking of time, they say, “time heals all pain”, so I’m patiently waiting. Its 2 months from being a year and nothing has gotten easier yet. Today you are celebrating your first birthday in heaven and I hope its better than any birthday that you’ve ever had here. I wish things could have been different, but thats something that I will never understand. I love you with all my heart, and miss more you everyday. Happy Birthday Dad.
