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.

HeerenLo..xMoved out

into my own house share, although this is the start I still need to find out what is around me, start making the most of my time, making time to do chores, do DIY myself and decorating myself and not rely so heavily on others to provide me with stuff for my room. 9 months ago

HeerenLo..xI am kind of bored

of the life that I lead at the moment. Having a lot of trouble getting a job so I think I will have to set myself some small goals just to keep on track.

I will be 24 soon and I have never ever felt so lost in my life. 16 months ago

having a bad few weeks, getting interviews but no job offers, wondering if I will ever be able to build a life for myself here. I have no friends, no job and slowly my motivation is disappearing. 17 months ago

HeerenLo..xTime to declutter my wardrobe

I have so many clothes that I have just not worn for years. They need to go so that I can get some space back. 19 months ago

HeerenLo..xI need to get

back into this as not only does it keep me fit, it also reduces stress and gives me a chance to be on my own and do something for myself. I think I will start doing this during the day instead of the evening as it will be better to get it out the way and I will have more energy. 19 months ago
