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.

~to the water~I've had this goal

for quite some time and have pondered for the longest time what these things would be…for my ideal job/work/life situation. But it’s not as complicated as my mind spins it up. Quite simply, it’s the opposite of what the situation is now. As much as I work to create the environment where I thrive I still wake up day after day in the same situation. Quite honestly, I don’t really know what has to change to make it any different. I thought my long-awaited vacation would revitalize me, but after a week back at work I feel the same as the a week prior to my vacation. Maybe I’m just hard to please, but one can’t go through life counting the minutes, hours, and days to the next vacation. 3 years ago

~to the water~first objective

with this goal might be the simple pleasure of walking through my front door without the need to concentrate on dragging my ass through the door. That might be a nice thing. Hmmm. 4 years ago
