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.

4 years later..

So, since the Mike fiasco I have grown as a person, and learned that my happiness should not depend on anyone but myself. Mike and I managed to create space and become better friends from it later on. I still felt like he was dragging me down though and moved on. After that, I had a long, drawn out 3 year abusive relationship which left me in shambles and raising a child by myself. Now, 30+ days later from him… I’ve let go and moved on. There’s no need to let anyone drag you down.. Including the people that you love without the return of said love.

Make it ONE DAY without the TV on
70+ hrs/week of work =

That’s right. Immersing myself in work has paid off tremendously. Also, moving in with my grandmother helped out with the goal more than anything. I no longer have the time to watch tv, and I have gone way more than 1 day without tv. At this point, it makes me wonder what I was thinking when I made this a goal. Obviously, it used to be a problem…
