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.

Another goal that will never be “finished” but I’m going to count it as “well established” and use the 43Things list for more specific, smaller goals. 9 years ago

AdarI feel so blessed...

I had lunch yesterday with the guys, who spent most of the meal teasing each other and me. It’s rare that we get to sit at a table together, and this summer, we’ll be all over the place.

Burgers never tasted so good. 9 years ago


Having dinner with ‘em tonight! 9 years ago

AdarI love my sons...

and I treasure the relationship I have with each of them. We’re not “pals” - I’m Mom - but we love and trust each other.

My relationship with my own parents has been awkward and difficult, and I don’t ever want to let things between me and my own children deteriorate to that point. 9 years ago
