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.

genguI am liking this goal more and more.

It is becoming more clear to me how important this actually is. Recently, my psychotherapy professor reminded me that being serious is more likely to get you stressed than being playful. Actually, she said that seriousness is the illness of the modern age. I have to agree on this one, since I have noticed from experience that I definitely feel better when I am playful and smiling, so now I try to apply that even in formal situations and hope people will get it as a warm approach instead of me being disrespectful! 2 years ago


This is going better than planned because I am working with children and my job is actually based on playing with them. Sooo, I have been enjoying my time at work as if it wasn’t my real job and that really makes me happy. I don’t get stressed, I don’t go home thinking about work and I get paid for playing…I think it can’t get less serious than this. :)
But that only refers to one aspect in life, so I am not marking this as done yet. 2 years ago
