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.

markovThe time may be right

Next January is my next chance for a trip. I’m looking into guided trips now.

Edit: February, March, and April look like the most common months for trips. 3 years ago


tikini wikini I still want to do this

However, I am removing all the goals from my list that are not part of my immediate plans. Immediate meaning, foreseeable future. Things I can do from where I am today in life, rather than things I wish I could do one day. 6 years ago


tikini wikini ever since one of my friends

told me about doing this, in the Sea of Cortez, I have longed to go.

She said she could hear the whales breathing.

I am pressing hard on my honey to buy a tandem kayak. Maybe that is what I will give him for Christmas. Or maybe, just update the roof rack to be able to transport it. And we can shop together for the kayak.

Not having one is too ridiculous. We can literally carry it out behind our house and launch it. This is the sort of thing where we will get the kayak and before we can take it out there, we’ll sell the house. 6 years ago

PasadenaSueJust beware of the wind.

I spent a week kayaking in Baja but also spent a few days stuck on shore when the wind started blowing and didn’t let up. It was fun, colder than I expected, and something I would do again. 7 years ago
