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.

Minimize existing clutter and excess possessions (read all 10 entries…)
amazing progress

I finally made an appointment with the consignment shop and took in all the old toys. Whatever they didn’t buy went to Salvation Army – I hope they all find many happy hours of play from other children.

I donated 4 more boxes of outgrown childrens clothes, 2 boxes of household items donated, and two big trash cans filled with junk. I donated winter coats/boots to the United Way outerwear drive and took in all the old skates and got store credit for new ones for my childs growing feet.

The toy closet seriously has some space now WHoooHOOOOO!



Build a garden trellis (read all 2 entries…)
finally completed trellis

Well, not really me but my husband built me one for Mother’s day. It looks awesome and my vines are already to the top.



Inline skate a marathon (read all 5 entries…)
it rained

It rained the day of the skate and I decided I was ill prepared to attempt it especially in those conditions. This isn’t a priority for me now – probably will not happen in 2008 either.
