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.

I was inspired to ‘try something new for 30 days’ by this TED talk.

“The next 30 days are going to pass whether you like it or not, so why not think about something you have always wanted to try and give it a shot for the next 30 days?”—Matt Cutts

I decided to de-activate my facebook account because I think I spend far too much time on there and not enough time doing things that are constructive and productive. I had once done it for a week, but I simply could not go on to do it for any longer after that because I was having major withdrawls (even though that was four years ago) So I’m prepared to take upon this challenge and succeed to the greatest extent.

I have set some goals to start myself with that I think will help me take my mind away from Facebook, focus and succeed:

- Create a new vision board, Write and Revise new speeches for Toastmasters, go to more Salsa events, look and apply for new employment, listen to more TED talks, drink more tea, take up sewing classes, write a list of other new goals for the month, go to the gym 3 to 4 times a week, update my 43Things, do more yoga and meditation. 22 months ago
