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.

a work in progressOnce I discovered this goal I had to move mine to include it here

Well I actually already wished Dharma a Happy “Early” Birthday the day before her birthday, but I had planned on coming here to wish her a Happy Birthday on 43Things where she has made many friends, created much laughter and been an inspiration. So here I am a day late, but here nevertheless. actually this is the second posting cuz I lost the first!! aaargh when will I learn?

What can I say, Dharma has been my best friend for the better part of my life and I don’t only mean “time” but her friendship has made my life better! I know how very fortunate I am to call her friend, and to take a quote from Jack Nicholson in As Good as It Gets “She makes me want to be a better person”.

I wish I was there to share her day with her and I hope it was lovely and full of happy memories and the love of her family. She is an amazing person and if anyone deserves a good year it’s her, I hope this one is a good one full of new hope on the horizon and that good fortune smiles upon her.

TGHappy Birthday, Dharma!

Now, for your present, I’ll sing you my rendition of “Oh Canada.”

On second thought, for your present, I won’t sing it ;)

You are one of the sweetest people I’ve met on the site, Dharma. I hope that you had a wonderful birthday, and I wish you a happy year to come.

Todd SchoonoverHappy Birthday

I’m glad that you found my little surprise goal for your birthday. Okay, so it wasn’t really a surprise, but I didn’t have to go and invite you to it for you to find it. :) Like Heavee said, it’s great to read what you write on 43T. Here’s my birthday wishes for you for the coming year:

May you find yourself needing to walk in other people’s shoes less, thereby ensuring that you are not being quick to judge. May you find your still point, and in so doing be at peace with yourself and your surroundings while still being present in the moment. And may your creative muses inspire you to design your own tattoo, and find the money to afford to get it done. 7 years ago


Here’s wishing that humor, creativity, fantasy, wisdom, new experiences and friends, times of fascination and discovery, and mostly, the feeling that the universe is playing along with you… are part of your birthday and stay with you throughout the year! Thanks for funny, witty, insightful and plain silly entries that make 43T the lively, spicy place that it wouldn’t quite be without you! :-) 7 years ago
