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.

FlashA local buddhist group has purchased a building on my block and has been remodeling it for 3 years or so

They swear the remodeling will be complete and there will be a fully-functioning Zen center here before the end of 2008. However, this seems to be one of those communities that operates on a fee-for-service basis, and I’m not sure how fully I will be able to participate in the community if everything costs money. 6 years ago


My spiritual home is a funny place. It’s not religious. It’s a dark, claustrophobic used record store on the wrong side of town. They don’t always have what I’m looking for, but they usually have something I didn’t expect.

That stretch of road in my favorite in the world, with the Arby’s and the adult bookstore and the post office. I love it all, all the strange little ethnic restaurants, the terrible drivers, and the way people are all just people there. They don’t try to be your best friend, but they don’t try to hurt you either. They all accept that this is an in-between place, where there aren’t any real prejudices or interests, just a collection of very different people coexisting.

When I drive that road and turn left after the light, I know I’m going home. 6 years ago


And a spiritual family to go with it 7 years ago
