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.

spend more time with my dad

I have always been super close with my parents, especially my dad. I’m an only child. But since my mom died suddenly about 3 months ago, it PAINS me to see my dad alone. He says he’s alright, but you know… You worry. I cry because I fear he is lonely. Sometimes I think I spend too much time bugging him, but then there are days I don’t see him and I worry about him. I want him to remember that even though mom is gone, he still has his daughter around to fill that void.

become ok with my body

After losing over 160lbs, I want to be ok with how my body is. I’m never going to be perfect, nobody is. So at this point, I just want to be happy with what I have and get rid of all this crazy body image stuff in my head.
