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.

i worked recently as a fund raiser on the streets, course considering i feel like a tool when trying to make conversation with strangers, well i wasn’t any good at it.

i was on the bus stop, and a girl sitting next to be turned to me and out of no were she started talking to me. we talked and talked, an talked and talked. through the whole bus journey we talked, it seemed to just fly by… i wish i stayed on there longer. but not only could i listen to her all day, she was beutiful i was lost in her eyes. and from the conversation i learned just how different she was from all my expectations. i havn’t been able to get her out of my mind since. the power of conversation :) 8 years ago


i envy poeple who can just walk up to someone and spark up a conversation. i have esteem issues, and i desperatly try being excepted so im afraid of being a fool, that is until im around my friends (then im just a big jack ass). i just want to loose all inhibitions and be able to talk freely and just not give a shite. 8 years ago
