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.

sweetolivesYou can't just pass them by...

I’ve walked past many people in my life. But I just can’t seem to walk past people who are worse off than me and just walk away. I always feel an inability to just turn away and walk towards my favourite restaurant or shopping mall and forget about that old man back on the street who can’t even afford 3 meals a day.

But it’s no point talking about it! Or thinking about it. We have to DO something about it! Join a volunteer program…in your country or to another country for a year. Take the opportunity to travel at the same time and open your eyes to the world that we live in…Help someone today who can’t help themself.

One thing I will definitely do before I die: Adopt a child from a third world country…cause there are so many kids out there who do not even have parents who love them…never experienced human care, let alone basic neccessities like food, education and roof over their heads.

Don’t turn away…Don’t just pass them by without being so GRATEFUL for everything that we have…

We have to be what we want to see.
