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.

Heading out again

In the morning I’m heading out on vacation in Utah with my friends Dan & Tom, who I’ve enjoyed many trips with (including several to Utah). This is my first vacation in 6 months so even though I’m apprehensive about how my leg will do, I’ve really been looking forward to it.

Considering how little I’ve been on here lately you guys probably won’t miss me much ;) but I’ll still be thinking of you & will send cards to those who I usually send postcards to.

See you all in a week and a half :)



Start getting out again (read all 9 entries…)
Friday 04-11-14 to Sunday 04-13-14

I’m WAY behind on posting for this goal and may never go back and get everything filled in, but I definitely wanted to mention that last weekend was the most unconventional weekend of my life! I’ll probably post more later, but sorry- some of the details will not be posted publically :D
