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.

JoshHappy Belated Birthday!

I hope your birthday (and today) was wonderful. I probably don’t show it as much as I should, but I’ve really appreciated your cheers, comments, and support over the years. I hope you have an amazing year and that you continue to find what you seek with life, your career, and with fitness. If it’s in the cards, perhaps someday we can share a meal or an adventure race. :)

From one chef to another,

Todd SchoonoverHappy Belated Birthday

With that initial word “sheepishly”, my mind immediately went to just how Tarrador would prepare sheep for us. Would he do a rack of lamb with pesto? I’m betting he would be more creative than just giving us a side of mint jelly. I’m picturing prosciutto-wrapped lamb roast with spinach stuffing or feta lamb burgers with blackberry sauce. I could even see him preparing a rosemary and garlic roast leg of lamb. Whenever I think of Tarrador, my mouth always waters because I know he’s an excellent chef who is both creative and dedicated to his craft. I admire him for that, and always appreciate when he gives us tips like what blades to use. Here are my wishes for him for the coming year:

May you always remember to dedicate the time to nurture your body as well as your mind, on your quest to be a healthy hedonist. May the plants in your garden thrive and provide a tasty bounty for you to use throughout the harvest. And may you always be able to change the energy from negative to positive when you need to reboot. 2 years ago
