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.

travel around the world (read all 2 entries…)
Central America

Over the holidays my husband and I took a road trip through El Salvador and Honduras. It was great!!! We managed to put 3000 miles on our rental car in just 2 weeks. I cant wait for our next trip, but we have to save up for it. We really want to take 3 weeks off work and take a tour through Greece, Italy and maybe France. Neither of us have been to Europe yet so it will be a great experiance.

live in NYC (read all 2 entries…)

I finally live in NYC!!! Its a funny story, I came to New York in the spring to visit some friends, and wound up meeting the perfect guy…..and now we’re married! Six months ago, I never thought I would be married or living out one of my dreams. But Im soooo happy. And the city is soooo excited and the culture is amazing.

live a simpler life
too much stress!!!

I recently visited ecuador and was amazed how happy everyone there was!! The entire country was full of people living well below the poverty level, yet the were content with their lives. I’ve come to the realization that the less you have materially, the less you have to worry about lossing. A simple life frees us from the worries an craziness of modern life. why would anyone want anything more than that?
