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.

Collectorofcats Let go of the past

But never forget it. Remember the good and rejoice. Remember the bad so I don’t repeat actions and behaviors that pull me down as before. Learn from my mistakes rather then dwell on them. 4 months ago

Lanze87Letting Go

I’m glad I found this to ad to my list, I think we can all relate to this. I’m 26 turning 27 in July and have been struggling in my art career and was considering giving up, but this past year I’ve let go of the past and thankful for it honestly, it’s made me who I am, and I’m ready to embrace the unfamiliar and let go of the past. I recently shot a music video with a Grammy artist, it was a small video but still it’s inspired me to move out west after grad school and embrace the unknown =) 9 months ago

Pacifica27I want to look in front of me rather than stare at what was behind me

I always think too much about the past, about the people that hurt me, rather than those here for me, about the way I used to be rather than the way I CAN be. I want to stop hating myself for things I have or have not done, and to start planning and changing myself for the future! 9 months ago
