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.

Let my light shine

I was recently watching Limitless with Bradley Cooper and I saw myself completely in the movie. He as a “loser” who basically had unlimited potential but was just drinking his life away. A writer who didn’t write. He had a crappy apartment. His girlfriend dumped him because he was going nowhere. It dawned on me that I was exactly like that!

All of a sudden he took this pill that allowed him to use 100% of his brain and everything just clicked. He knew what he had to do. He got more of the magic pills and started achieving greatness. If you wanna know more about it watch the movie, it’s worth watching.

I realized that the person in the movie was exactly like me. If I don’t make the changes in life I’m just going to waste it. I have unlimited potential. I am limitless in my own way. No need for magic pills, all I need to do is look inside …

“It’s in the way you’re always hiding from the light
See for yourself you have been sitting on a time bomb
No revolution maybe someone somewhere else
Could show you something new about you and your inner song
And all the love and all the love in the world
Won’t stop the rain from falling
Waste seeping underground
I want to break it down” 3 years ago
