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.

We have been home for almost a week now. As I sit back and try to recount all we did there, I find we really did a lot. When we were there, it seemed like there was just a lot of sitting around by the pool, which there was, but we also did a bunch of the activities provided by the resort and just some on our own.

A few of my favorite activities:
- lounging around the pool
- enjoying a few beers at the swim up bar
- reading a book
- ordering room service
- swam some laps in the pool outside our room and also swam some laps in the 100 meter lap pool. This was so nice; swimming for 100 m without having to turn around.
- running on the beach
- lobster dinner on the beach
- attending the nightly shows. They were an acrobatic dance type of show. Very entertaining.
- snorkeling along the coral reef and seeing a lot of different, friendly fish.
- a boat ride on a catamaran
- touring the ruins at Tulum
- dinner every night as a family.
- learning how to drink tequila
- watching the kids go kayaking
- relaxing in the Jacuzzi in our room during the one rain storm

Maybe the best part of the whole trip was that all 6 of us got along so well and there was no fighting or anyone getting mad at something or someone. I truly have a great family. 17 months ago

Bob1623Soon to Leave

In less than 12 hours we will be taking off for Mexico. Not sure I can post or cheer while there, but will do catching up when we return. Maybe even post some pictures.

Have a great week everyone. 18 months ago

Bob1623This is easy

Easy only in the fact my wife has worked out all the details with the travel agent to have the whole family go to Cancun for a week.

We leave Sunday.

We are going to one of those all inclusive resorts for a care free week of relaxing. I’m not sure what to expect. I did see there is a pool so I hope to get a lot of swimming in. Maybe have a Dos Equis or two and eat vegetarian food all week.

I should be able to pack light too. Bring only a couple pairs of shorts, a couple shirts, swim suit, sandals, sun screen and sunglasses. Maybe a book to read too. 18 months ago
