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.

OtterGirl537B's Family

A wonderful 28 hours or so of laughter. I don’t know how most families are but B’s family laughs together more than many I’ve seen. I was blessed to get to spend a little time with them this weekend, playing and laughing. It was wonderful. 15 months ago

meadowviewartistLaughed much this week...

Had the good fortune of being with two of my favorite storyteller friends Marni Gillard and Jay O’Callahan. Marni came to visit this week from upstate NY and I’m lucky Jay lives in my town. On Tuesday we spent nearly four hours together sharing new ideas, which included much laughing. Wednesday we went back to Jay’s to share a meditation, share more stories, and have dinner and laughs with Jay’s wife, Linda. Marni stayed with me and I took her to Cape Cod where we saw young kids jumping off the Sandwich Boardwalk. Also showed her some of my favorite local places to walk and think. I don’t think people can ever get enough fresh air, or laugh… 18 months ago

Recipe for laffs = youtube vids of outtakes from your fave tv shows. Some suggestions are Parks & Recreation and The Office. If these do not make you laugh despite yourself, you are dead inside. 23 months ago

Living In God's Exquisite, Miraculous SufficiencyWith Him

I get a lot of moments to get to laugh more with GV. Though I am normally a fairly happy person, real laughter has not been a real trait of mine, rather my children’s. I was such a serious child and as an adult, took on aggressively goals, ladened by perfectionism . . . .

With GV, I’m learning to laugh and to laugh more. Praise God! 2 years ago

I peed in my pants today. Let me back up a little bit. I woke up with a uti. As a normally healthy 36 year old woman, I take it for granted that when I have to go to the bathroom, I will have plenty of time to make it to a toilet without incident. Not so this morning. The best part was my arch nemesis wanted to know why I was late for work. I looked her square in the eye & said “because I peed my pants.” I’m pretty sure that’s not what she wanted to hear. 2 years ago

We had a party today for work. Free lunch puts everyone in a good mood. Even though our mgr had us doing some slightly mortifying exercises in self-disclosure, I don’t remember ever laughing so hard. I was physically exhausted in a good way afterwards. 2 years ago
