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.

Margaret MartinI got one

If you start one, you’ll feel great about finishing it even if finding a job is hard in this economy. I agree with all the advice given, but in my final year, when I was away from campus I hired a coach. It was only coaching on the phone which was cheaper than meeting with somebody. The coach was a person who coached people on writing projects. It didn’t matter that she wasn’t in my field, in fact this probably helped. She wasn’t like an advisor, she was just someone who helped me to be accountable to myself and my goals. I actually found myself working harder when I knew we were going to have a call coming up. Because I was paying for this, I felt like I needed to make it worthwhile. All of these things were basically mental tricks to keep me going when I was isolated from other grad students in another city and only meeting with my advisor every few months. It really worked though. I doubt I would have finished without her. Spouse, Friends are too invested in you and your success to be this kind of help. You may need somebody without the emotional connection who can kick you in the rear when you are slacking off. Sort of like a trainer. 10 months ago
