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.

Beginnings Herewow. this is so sad.

I just tuned in to realize what has been happening. You characterize my feelings so well on this. I feel betrayed.

How would one back up our profiles and posts? Are there best strategies for this?


And…is there no way to transition this to someone else’s care? 2 weeks ago

Beginnings HereI did get the files out

I just can’t find the bars to hang the files.

However, I did get the chaise up from the garage and it looks comfy on the deck.

Not sure where the best placement will be, but so far it is working out to keep experimenting with things.

Slowly I make the changes. Love working on the yard. Will need to reenter life at some point. 3 months ago

Beginnings HereIt always feels darkest before the light?

I am having a hard time this year.

Losing my mom. My daughter overseas for so many months. I feel alone and isolated. Even losing a friend. Odd, because throughout the work day I don’t think about it. When nights and weekends come, I just look so alone. Truth is – I look that way, but I am happy in my solitude. I think the fact that I am a fish out of water right now doesn’t help. New neighborhood. I know no one. I feel out of it.

I should invite people, but I enjoy just spending time alone.

Odd. The weather will break, and hopefully all will be well again.

Beginnings HereI keep seeing Ariana Huffington

So, I am done. Saw her talk 4 times from Thrive.

And a few others. If you are a female with an accent apparently that gets you on a lecture tour. And writing a book.

All good. Lots of folks with interesting good things to say. 3 months ago
