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.

Post 100 Quality Entry for My Blog in 2007!

One minute I’m fired up, the next minute my blog will once again lay dormant for months until I remember that I do have one and start writing in it.

Writing is one of my passion, and this should be a good brain exercise for me.

Volunteer in charities on which cause I believe in (read all 2 entries…)
Not giving this up...

But merely postponing it to make way for other lists.

Will definitely be re-opened.

Clean up my list (read all 2 entries…)

After thinking for a while I decided that the goals should only focus on what I could do in 2007. Only. Strictly. And only that.

That means no mention of going to Paris, starting a business etc etc!

Some goals will be ongoing goals, such as this one simply because of their…well, nature.

Hopefully this way the goals will be more attainable and at the end of 2007 I’ll feel more satisfied with what I’m able to achieve!

See all entries ...
