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.

flankdubtechnojazzSome thoughts

It seems to me that everything has to have a reason. Otherwise there’s no point in it existing or occuring. Whenever I have a boring task to do, I ask myself why I’m doing it. And if there isn’t one, I look for one or stop doing whatever it is. I end up looking for reasons inside reasons inside reasons like when thinking about exam revision. Why revise? so you do well in exams. Why do well in exams? it improves your chances of getting the job/uni place you want. Why get a job? so you can live comfortably. Why live?... then I can’t think of a reason for it. Lately I’ve given myself goals and things to achieve before I die that’ll keep me trundling on for a while but I still don’t feel a sense of motivation, a sense that life and everything that comes with it will be worth it. 2 years ago

flankdubtechnojazzCoursework, zzzzzzzzzzz

more struggling to do, despite the holidays approaching. I’ve got to get 3000 words done by tuesday and it’s taken me like a week to do the first 1000. I just want it to be over so I can finally relax. 3 years ago
