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.

learn sign language
I use to know it

I seen a girl the other day who couldn’t communicate with the store lady what she wanted. That broke my heart. I use to know but as they say “if you don’t use it, you loose it!” So I’be decided to learn this again and hopefully this time I won’t forget. A way I practice, doing my spanish word in sign-language. Maybe somehow, I’ll get the hang of both!

Improve my cooking skills and range by Febraury 2007
Good Goal!

Good goal! I’ve actually tried this and its definately worth it. Go online to get some great ideas. I even joined a cooking club online! They send you magazines and free products to try. Awesome. Something I really got into this year, Pita Bread. You can stuff anything in them. Beef for Philly’s or Even make Tacos (which were fantastic by the way!) I hope you reach your goal. My new goal, learn to cook chinese that I can actually eat (which means, some didn’t turn out to be edible!!!) LOL!

communicate with my mate!
Communication with Your love is the KEY!

I know, your all saying, he’s too shy, she naggs too much, he’s got issues, she’s not willing to see things my way! Been through all that. But marriage and dating are both fun and exciting. Like everything else in life, they take hard work, but it’s all worth it. When you get along with your love, then everything else falls into place. You smile more, you stress less, and getting some stuff off your back nicely makes that person change as well! I love my baby and I never wanna loose him. IF you love yours, make communication a real goal! You’ll love him/her more and more everyday!
