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.

whirlingSpring Break

Have spent the week on the boat and am having a wonderful time. Went down the river and sailed with just the jib out. very pleasant, even tried out the auto pilot. Did have to motor in quite aways as the wind picked up above our ability. Stayed at a different marina and motored back the next day. A very pleasant week that reminded me of how nice it is to go sailing. 3 years ago


We didn’t do this last fall. Don’t know if we’ll be able to do it this summer when we plan to visit down east. We’ll see… 3 years ago

whirlingTook the boat to the boat yard

This will be an expensive visit. Did a good job of backing out of the slip and an especially good job tieing up at the boat yard. Coasted between some pilings to get to the dock. Very pleased with myself. 3 years ago
