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.

hhannahwhile i only actually got up for about 17 seconds...its too cold here\

now to continue with this goal. Now that I have actually purchased the skis – next year at the cottage I will get up and tour the lake. So technically the first part of the goal is complete…next year I will take it to a new level…(beginner) haha! 3 years ago

hhannahthe final outcome was 17 seconds I got up...

I wouldnt call this a goal completed – however the summer waterskiing weather is pretty much over here in Canada…so I may need to retire this goal until next summer. Or in the meantime I can change it to…a winter goal – want to sooo badly go Snowmobiling. So there thats it Its on!!! 3 years ago

hhannahI have tried to do this in the past but it seems to be the one sport that I have been

unable to do…in fact I cant get up! thats my problem. I have tried on two different occasions a couple of times – so im hoping with the weather being so good this summer and going to the cottage a few more times with these new skis I will at least get up and have a tour around the lake! 3 years ago
