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.

dance in front of people without restraining myself

I’m practicing…in front of my mirror :D

Learn another language

Kay, English, Italian…It’s time to pick another one…still deciding..

overcome my shyness

Well, hopefully I’ll be working on that soon. I’m going to start dancing in a group again. We used to put on shows every 3 months or so. The great thing about it is that when the music starts to play, the only thing that matters is to have fun. And who cares if the people in front row saw your bra strap slid off your shoulder…

laugh until it hurts every day

I have spent the most marvellous 4 days on an island called Brbinj this summer. I laughed more in those 4 days then i did for the past 4 years. I’m finding it very hard to find that kind of joy these days. It all seems gloomy. Don’t get me wrong, I do laugh every day. But I’d love to find that pure happiness again.
