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.

How do people do this?

Write 43 of my own Post Secrets (and put them here) (read all 8 entries…)

People think my little complaints are how I feel, but they are really just miniscule versions of an explosive issue that I keep to myself. It’s unhealthy I know, but only a few people know how truly introverted I am despite how I pretend to be extroverted. I don’t vent and that’s my secret.

“If I love you, what business is it of yours?”
-Johann Wolfgang von Goethe
(Second Favorite!!)

“I went to the woods because I wished to live deliberately, to front only the essential facts of life, and see if I could not learn what it had to teach, and not, when I came to die, discover that I had not lived.”
-Henry David Thoreau

“We are all in the gutter, but some of us are looking at the stars”
- Oscar Wilde
(My favorite!!)

“Dreams come true. Without that possibility, nature would not incite us to have them.”
- John Updike

“Only those who risk going too far can possibly find out how far one can go.”
