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.

sierra_dreamrVolunteering is the way to go

I’ve met several people who are friend material volunteering in the community. It’s always good to know your friends care about others and girls who get out on a saturday to help other women usually do. 6 years ago

sierra_dreamrLife IS good

I moved and am much happier. Still haven’t met most of my neighbors, but we recently had 20 friends over and it was like “Wow, these are only by best friends, I have a great circle”.

Need to work on work friends/ mentors. 6 years ago

sierra_dreamrMoving is a great opportunity

I’m moving locally from a rich white neighborhood back to the city where people walk to restaurants, raise kids, don’t agree on religion and don’t live behind gates. I can’t wait! It’s been too long!

My goal is to meet the neighbors on dog walks, at the coffee shop, and at the park meetings. I always love more friends. 6 years ago

sierra_dreamrBe a Joiner

Premise: people who join groups meet other people who they have something in common with.

Based on this premise I have joined a non-profit women’s leadership/ volunteer association. This wouldn’t typically be my sort of thing. This orgnization has an ‘upper crust’ image even though they claim to open to all and many of ladies involved the are older and wealthy (my mom was once one). Although this image still holds true for the membership in general I found the group of ladies who were just joining to be a bunch of energetic jean clad professionals.

On Sat I went to the 1st meeting. The incoming bunch was a group of 60 professional ladies from 25-35. I meet two cool women I immediately connected with and will have further contact with. I was also invited into a group of ladies (a subset of this bunch) in my area of SD. I mentioned when I introduced myself to the group I was looking new and for work. Now 20 more people who might have an interest in helping/ networking etc. know about my job hunt than on Friday. 7 years ago
