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.

marry an irishman
Well that's really self-explanatory isn't it??

Ok, now this will sound all very hocus pocus or new agey or something, none of which I typically am… but I’ve always felt somehow that my “soulmate” (again with the new agey stuff) will be found in Ireland. And apart from anything else, the accent just makes me laugh non stop. And the dancing and singing. Oh the joy!

I want to live in Ireland for a year....


I have set my goal to go in January 2010. I have fleeting fears that I will be so out of my depth and be homesick as hell, and I know I will, like I was when I was first at boarding school. But it passed, and I know it will be the same in Ireland. While there I am going to LIVE! I want it to be the best year of my life to that point. I will also allow my hear to stay open while i’m there. Take it as it comes.. which leads me to goal no. 2….
