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.

I have made a real improvement with this and manage to see my immediate family a lot but actually I always have, I just make more effort to spend quality time with them.
I see my Mum and little brother at least once a week, my Dad every couple of weeks and the same with my older brothers.

I guess the ones I need to work on are my wider family. I haven’t seen my Nan and Granddad for roughly a year and they live locally so its not good enough. I have been saying since January that I will stop over for a cup of tea and I haven’t even managed that! 8 months ago

I received a phone call yesterday regarding the passing of my grandfather. I planned on seeing him sometime next year. I was disappointed when I was unable to make it to his 90th birthday celebration; my financial situation at the time would not allow it. He lived a long, beautiful life, 92 glorious years.

I really need to take this goal seriously, not to check it off my list, but because life, like time, is short, and it can’t be taken for granted. R.I.P. Grandpa, I miss you already… 3 years ago
