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.

freesugarWhy I've given up:

I’ve watched some of these movies and it didn’t feel like they were the best out there. Next time I’m doing a movie goal, I’m choosing my own movies. 2 months ago

28 12 Angry Men
Really good movie! Great dialogue, and Henry Fonda’s acting is so subtle and brilliant! It’s about a jury panel of 12 men who need to come to a decision on whether to acquit or convict a teenager supposed of murder. All but one favour guilty at the start, and this is the story of how that one dissenting voice turned the rest.
