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.

One should never cease to improve one’s traits – in other words, to reinvent oneself into a better human being. With that being said, with all those reinventions one has put in their life, they ought not forget their innermost heart and soul. 2 weeks ago

In the sea of serenity and purity, I dissolved like salt.
Belief, unbelief, conviction, doubt – None Remained!
A star appeared inside my heart.
The seven heavens disappeared in that star’s light. 8 months ago

Ana BelleTO DO

Decide who the hell do I want to become!!!
Not professionally but… What is this person that I so desperately want to be like, what does she do, what doesn’t she do, what does she say, how is she like etc. 10 months ago

Ana BelleThe first step...

...has been done. The painful acceptance of the fact that no one else can save or change me. That everything is in my mind and therefore my fight, and mine alone. That it’s gonna take a long long time, and it probably will be the hardest thing I will have ever done. That I need to be persevering and patient even in the hardest of moments and never ever give up, even if it doesn’t feel like I’m doing too much progress. Never give up, no matter what. I am ready. I hope. 10 months ago
