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.

I didn’t break my rule of going out of the house during the hardest point. Instead… I hang on. I lock myself back in my room despite my queasy stomach. 5 months ago


Story is looking good! but the devil is in the details. Getting the details right that is! Wishing me the strength to do this =) 5 months ago


Get everything out of your mind first :) via writing.
Once nothing is bothering you. You will find yourself at a state of peace. This might take a few hours, so always give yourself the time if you want to write. You have to let yourself warm up. Let yourself be. Writing is a long process. Be patient and your mind will let you write lots of amazing things. 5 months ago


This is really a difficult goal to achieve regularly, even though I’ve been writing for years. I recommend Steven King’s book On Writing if you need some good habits to get into it :)

Here is also a funny quote about being a writer… 5 months ago
