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.

Eliezer2011 Birthday Goal

I considered it first time I read it, and, BTW, this was one of the goals that motivated me to open my 43T account back in 2011. So, that year, after my birthday, I decided to take a long hot shower, and having the experience. It was kinda cool. I was warm in the inside, and could feel the ice cold beer “freezing me from the inside”. Very cool.

Haven’t done it again since; but, who knows? Maybe someday.

DoctorTeethBirthday Goal

Like I said to my friends during dinner last night:

“Drinking something in the bathtub can range from ‘relaxing’ to ‘sexy’ to ‘decadent.’ Drinking something in the shower is always ‘sad.’ Always.”

So yeah. That was kind of sad. But it was fun. And the combination of the warm water on the outside and the cold water on the inside was a really great sensation. 2 years ago
