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 think that I have been attaining this goal most of the time. I have been much more relaxed and thoughtful. At work I have been calmer and less flappable. I have been trying to move at a steady but slower pace, which has been working most of the time.

The next two weeks will determine whether I have truly achieved the goal. Thursday is the first day of my busiest work week in several months. If all goes as planned I am scheduled to work 65 hours, but if anything goes awry if will be even longer. 2 years ago

Its easier to be relaxed and less aggressive and less time/schedule-driven in the summer. It feels good. I feel like a more decent and tolerable person… not so anxious to beep my horn at the driver in front of me and not willing to complain about the cashier taking forever with the customer ahead of me. I hope that I can continue this once things get really busy. 3 years ago
