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.

RhoswenToo vague

I’m marking this goal done, even if I haven’t travelled much the last few years. It’s yet another vague goal that I don’t want to keep on my list. I would love to travel more in the future, but I’ll create new goals for that when it’s more likely that I actually can do it. 4 months ago

Ever mindfulFree trip to paradise

My sister in law won a free trip to the Bahamas. Her best friend could not get the time off from work, so she asked me. I didn’t mind being her second choice. I begged my boss to rearrange my schedule and pulled my passport out of the fireproof box. We went the week before Thanksgiving. The details were sketchy. I wondered if it was going to be goofy in some way. I was pleasantly surprised. We flew in a chartered plane with gourmet meal service, drinks, movies, etc. The resort we stayed at had several tiers of service from budget to top of the line. We were placed in a luxurious room with a balcony overlooking the bay. There were several events we had to attend in cocktail attire. I had no idea what to expect. The first night we made our way down to a cocktail party. We thought they would serve us a few appetizers and maybe a drink or two. There was table after table of food: sandwiches, desserts, salads. And there were half a dozen bars ready to make any drink imaginable – all top shelf. I couldn’t believe it. Just when I started to feel somewhat comfortable, Taboo from the Black Eyed Peas performed as the DJ. I felt like I was at a Hollywood party. It was absolutely nuts. We crammed a great deal of fun into a few days – walking the beaches, checking out the yachts, taking a water taxi to Nassau, nightclubs, casino. I came home to 20 degree weather…but I was tanned and happy. I will probably never experience something like that again. It was like something out of the Lifestyles of the Rich and Famous. 5 months ago
