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.

grow my hair to waist length
Pretty Happy With the Progress

I cut all of my hair off, slightly over a year ago. I had decided to go natural (perm free) and as of now my hair is at shoulder length overall. I am really happy with the growth over the past year and I feel that I have found a regimen that works for my hair.

Taking the first steps

I came upon this goal not because of a desire for money necessarily, but because of my inability to choose a major for college. I have interests and talents in so many seemingly unrelated areas and I felt that I was severely limiting myself by boxing myself into a single career for the rest of my life! I said jokingly to someone that maybe I’ll just be a millionaire. lol. I began thinking how incredibly achievable of a goal this could be, especially if I allow myself to explore my many ideas and talents. So I’ve begun making plans to further my education, and begin putting away money for future business endeavors. 1 Million is just the first goal!

Bringing Me Back To Earth

Yesterday was a Sunday evening. I was feeling a little down, not looking forward to the coming week, and it had been a gross overcast day. It started to rain extremely hard, and the noise of the rain outside my open window immediately brought me back to earth. The sun was beginning to set, and it was that beautiful twilight time of day. The view outside my window was so gorgeous, and the sound of the pouring rain gave me pause. I grabbed my best friend, and took him with me to go play in the rain….. I had spent hours on my hair earlier that day, and in an instant my hair began to curl back up. Lol. I realized, while we both ran around playing like children, that I had absolutely no reason to complain.
