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.

...didn’t start having kids until he was 38. I wonder what the odds of me over/under 38 are?

Joshua_R_Cochran_DMDI have always wanted... run my own business. After college, I didn’t feel like had any particular skill set or expertise. So, I went to dental school. I graduated from dental school a couple years ago, and feel comfortable and ready to build my practice.

I found a great mentor dentist this summer, Stanley A. Sargent. We’re currently working on a contract for me to join his practice Grand Corner Dental.

One way to help with practice growth is having an online visible presence. So, I also have my own website/personal blog that I haven’t been using much lately Spokane Dentist . I want to market myself online, but I’m not sure where I should focus my efforts rich now, the practice website or my own. The practice website looks great, but is kinda limited in my ability to customize and optimize it.

Any thoughts?

Good luck the rest of you with building up your own businesses. Being your own boss is the only way to go. I wish you all success in the new year. 3 years ago

Jed and Travis are of the same mindset. We need to not be lazy and do some snow skiing this winter. It’s tough because after working all week, I just want to take it easy. I need to push through, and get my butt up to the mountain. My mom is even on ski patrol, so I can get free tickets.

Joshua_R_Cochran_DMDjust went on a run with...

a triathon club on Sunday, Team Blaze

We met at the Carousel in downtown Spokane, and then ran along the river, past Gonzaga, past Avista and about a mile down Upriver Drive. It was fun and the run flew by. I think I need to run more with clubs to make it more fun and meet some new folks who are zealous about life. 3 years ago

I owe enough mint to US Govt to buy three nice houses. Sometimes I wonder if it would have been better to skip college and grad school all together… 3 years ago
