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.

JackEverymanBuilt paper-making frames with my son.

This was fun. Good times. 4 months ago


JackEverymanHad kids make dinner with me.

After getting them over the hurdle of having to do any work, they got into it and followed the recipes. It takes longer than it would had I made dinner myself, but I believe it is way better for them to be productive with me. Plus, quality time. 7 months ago


JackEverymanAt home with kids today

Both kids sick. I had them do the Pomodoro technique with me so they didn’t waste all the hours of the day. It was kind of fun and we stayed in sunch as I worked from home. 7 months ago
