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.

Retiring, Too Vague

I’m retiring this goal to the “I give up” section because I also feel it’s too vague. Days will go by where I follow this goal perfectly, but then there are some days where it’s just not possible to fulfill. I will probably recreate this goal to have a better definition of being “completed.”

Another Goal that's too vague

I’m retiring this goal to the “I give up” section because I also feel it’s too vague. Days will go by where I follow this goal perfectly, but then there are some days where it’s just not possible to fulfill. I will probably recreate this goal to have a better definition of being “completed.”

Retiring this goal....too vague!

I’m retiring this goal into the “I’ve given up” section because I feel it’s too vague and difficult to determine when it’s finally “accomplished.” I’ve made great strides into kicking my procrastination habit but still slip back into it from time to time. I’d rather focus on more concrete goals in the future.
