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.

get a dog
rhodesian ridgeback

cut my wrists
not worth it

really not worth it i did it in high school. you grow up and realize the shit that you cut for was pointless. the reasons were dumb. hell i would pay to go through the shit i was cutting for in high school over what i have to go through now. its really not worth it. go for a jog, write in a journal, listen to music. what ever cutting just isn’t worth it.

Stop cutting
i finally stopped

i realized i was cutting to fill a whole that was to big to be filled by cutting or anything. honestly the only thing that could fill it was God.

improve my swimming
club swimming

Just dont go join a club team and swim competetivly… i did for 10 years and it kinda took the fun outta it.. I would much rather train by myself than with a coach now. And club swimming becomes your whole life. at one point friends stopped asking me to hang out cuz they knew i would have swimming…
