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.

tinamareeGetting there!

I just started a new job as a dental assistant that I spent 10 months going to school for…. I believe this is my ticket to reaching my goal of having a small organic farm! With my new stable income I can begin my savings and spend my spare time getting educated on how to run a farm! I cant wait till this becomes a reality 4 years ago

In August 2003 I went to a meditation retreat in Oregon which lasted 2 weeks…I ended up staying 9 months! It was a great experience and I met loads of interesting nice people. Everyone there was there for a spiritually minded purpose. I loved the feeling of peace and love that filled the atmosphere. I helped out with many duties on the farm, such as cleaning, gardening, and preparing food. Meditation was such a pure experience there. During summer, I enjoyed going down the road to the Umpqua River and taking a swim during the warm, sunny weather. I helped pick herbs and chamomile flowers for tea. During the fall, I got to eat fresh organic pears and apples everyday! I also braved pushing loads of compost with my huge rain clothes in the rain, and falling down in the mud..haha. The rain made the dry grass come alive again in winter, with the most green hues I have seen in nature. The clean air and spring water revived my spirit, along with meditation and walks through the forests. This was the untimate naturous experience in my short life. 9 years ago
