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.

Everything has a place, and everything is where it belongs. I’m thinking about buying new file folders tho, because some of them I just crossed out the old name on the tab and wrote a new one. =P Anyway. Mission accomplished! Now I just need to keep up with it… 6 years ago


DONE! Might do a more detailed organization later, but the pile is gone and everything is in file folders 8 years ago


2” left, and I still need to organize everything I threw into one big ‘important papers’ folder 8 years ago


went through an inch of the pile but it ended up looking like the biggest ant hill anyone’s ever seen because there was about 12 unopened junk mails 8 years ago


went through and threw away some more. stack is still about 5” high 8 years ago


I started on this and threw away a bunch of junk mail but then never have gone back to finishing the pile . going to try for tomorrow; not sure if I should keep old bank statements etc it probably doesnt matter; never have had much money for anyone to worry about . .all I can think of is if I would need to prove I’ve paid elec bill before or something to show credit; but I think maybe people only used to have to do something like this before everything was computerized 8 years ago
