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.

Blaine ByrumEven the "bad" things count.

I’ve always had an affinity for danger, liked breaking the social rules, and disagreeing with what large groups of people decide to do. Up to the point where I will do the opposite of ANYTHING, just to prove I’m not a mindless, brainwashed drone. Peed on electric fences, set my hair on fire arachnophobia-style, licked tires because people told me I wouldn’t- That sort of thing. Now, I’m nine months into my rookie year as a firefighter, and it just feels right to be running into burning buildings when most normal people run out. Don’t disregard the “flaws” in your life as things that aren’t who you are. It’s all you. Accept everything. 7 months ago

patpatkayAs Long As You're Happy, Man.

There is so much I wish to know about my future. I don’t know what I’m going to be but I know whatever it is, it’s going to be in the field of the arts. I’ve never really been the type to like Science or Math subjects. I’ve always found more joy in doing arts. I’m really lame at Math okay. If I were to be a Mathematician or a Scientist, my skill in that field would be that equivalent to Homer Simpson trying to explain the theory of relativity. I’m horrible at those sort of subjects. My dad isn’t particularly happy with my life choices but hell, as long as I don’t end up in a job I hate and regret having for the rest of my life then I’m good. I think the economy and the world would be much better if people all worked in careers they were good at and loved doing. And besides, people don’t necessarily have to be good at something at the very beginning because chances are, if you’re passionate enough, you’ll be willing to learn and eventually get better. 12 months ago
