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.

purlingplans5 weeks

I’ve been writing daily for 5 weeks straight now & have filled almost 1/4 of my journal. I’ll call it a habit at 10 weeks :) Halfway there! 4 years ago

purlingplansOriginally... "Write More"

I’ve been keeping a journal for the first time in my life (as in, I’ve written in it for more than 5 days running, an approximation of my previous record!) This is part of a class I’m taking and phew! was I skeptical at first. It’s not a ‘this is what happened today’ type of journal. It’s more of a ‘this is what I thought about today and how I felt about it’, ‘this is what I’m working on’, ‘this is what I’m grateful for’ type of journal. I’ve known for a long time that writing helps me to process my experiences and emotions, but bringing some consistency to the process has been awesome (if intense at times). I still write a lot outside my journal too – thoughts, draft blog posts, things that come up during the days, but I’m finding that writing first thing in the morning helps clear my head and prepare me for the day. I’m loving it and plan to make it a habit. 4 years ago

I’m gonna stick to one day a week…I’ll try that out. 7 years ago

Bluestar233Ideas, Ideas

I’ve found a cool site that I would like to use for this goal. Some of the ideas are challenging, a few strange, but most interesting enough that I’d actually want to try them. If, on that particular day, I am for some reason uninspired by the idea I will substitute it with free-writing of my own. 7 years ago
