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.

Do NaNoWriMo
Just the start

This was actually the 4th year I’ve participated in NaNo but the first year I stuck through it the entire month. I did not complete my novel but making it to the finish line was my main goal. Next year I plan on winning NaNo but for now I am content with the fact that I stuck with it.

get into pharmacy school
step 1

I just got into Temple’s pre-pharm program. I’ll take all my pre-reqs while getting a bachelor’s in Biology, then on to pharmacy school. On my way…

take better care of my teeth
Step one

So I went to the dentist for the first time in a long time (lets just say it’s been a few years) and it went well. Becoming more vigilant about flossing, but I still hate it and I got some good tips from the dentist. After having braces and having to go to the dentist all the time, I’ve dreaded going back, but I’ve found a great office. Flossing is my biggest hurdle. Who really likes to do it? But I’m going to keep at it.
