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.

Fold 1000 paper crane
Origami love

I love paper cranes… They are simple, elegant and steeped in tradition. Folding thousands of them and creating garlands for the sick is an old tradition.
I would like to creat strands of these elegant paper birds to hang about my room. It would just create a more ‘me’ atmosphere, add the colors I want and provide meditation time while I fold them up

be more confident
Getting there...

I got out of a relationship a year ago with a very controlling and jealous guy… I feel that I have lost that bright confident girl I once was but I am slowly reclaiming my old bubbly and flirtatious outgoing self again!! The other day I flirted with some random cute guy at the gas station and he asked me for my number… During and even after my last relationship I would have been seized with feelings of guilt and even have panic attacks if a guy even looked at me, as though I was doing something very very wrong…
I’m getting back to my old self and I couldn’t be more proud!! Next step: actually giving my number out and just maybe going on that date… : )

work out every day (read all 2 entries…)

I just received my P90X system today!!! I start it on Saturday this week and am sooo excited! This is also in conjunction with my ‘look like a Victoria’s secret model’ goal and I’ve already gotten back down to my pre-baby weight of 110lbs… Now it’s time to tone up and make working out each and every day a part of my lifestyle!

See all entries ...
