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.

Daily attention is the secret. I am not sure if 43Things is about goals, or dreams, or desires. For me it is acknowledging what is important in my life and the goals will ensue from these areas.

I sometimes rewrite my goals. It is great. Focusing attention on what you want helps to mobilise energy and what I learnt from this is that it is not just your energy, it is the energy of the universe that starts rolling and tumbling and will fall in your direction making things happening. That is, if you’re open to, if you can imagine.

It works for me. Thank you all, everybody who is part of this wonderful community. Thank you! 5 months ago

Is it impossible to stay on top of everything? My biggest challenge now is to get myself through the day and feel valuable, doing things that take my life to a higher level.
43things is inspiring, I am grateful for all the reactions and cheers. It helps knowing you’re not alone.
Maybe I should create a goal of having more meaningful relations. Having loving people around you that don’t judge, support when they can and are open-minded. 3 years ago
