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.

- The Robots.

DoctorTeethImprov has become

less of a priority in the year or so since I added this goal to my list. I’m not giving up entirely, though, as the idea does appeal to me and might look good during acting auditions (few and far between though they may be), I’m just sticking a pin in this for now. 15 months ago

DoctorTeethYes, And

I’ve been in an improv group for the past eight months, and I’ve had some experience in other groups for over fifteen years. But it wasn’t until I went to a long-form improv show on Wednesday that I thought about actually taking a course. I like to view myself as a semi-talented amateur: I don’t know anything technical but I know what I can do. However, even if I don’t go any further than I already am, I should probably learn something about the form and strengthen my weaker areas. And a local theater group offers a number of “introductory” classes starting every couple of months. I was on the fence about it at first, but I realized it was just because I was scared, and since this is My Year Of Failure, I immediately jumped at this as something to fail at. I’m going to see when the next classes start and sign up as soon as I’m able! 2 years ago
