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.

MercedesI did it!

On Friday with a group of artists whom I’ve recently become friends with. It was so much fun. We worked on our art individually from 8:30-11:00pm at a pleasant, outdoor coffee shop on the lake. We then shared what each part of our collage meant with the group. As I explained mine to the group, I found myself confronting my fears of sharing my art and just flying past those fears. I also found myself realizing more about the collage as I explained it. It was a very positive artistic and creative experience for me.

I will post my motivation wall soon! I will take a picture of it tonight. 5 years ago

MercedesOne Idea for a Motivation wall

Cut out lots of pictures from magazines, books, newspapers. Things that simply evoke joy or images that relate to my main goals. Get a big black poster board and paste them all up in my condo where I will see the images every single day. I’m going to try this!!! 6 years ago
