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.

Dinah SandersThe book is actually structured to help with exactly this

In addition to breaking the book down into getting started and the three core principles of Discardia, there are notes at the start of each section of Discardia: More Life, Less Stuff to help orient you each March, June, September, and December. 3 years ago

~Lady-of-Shalott~Countess Purrs Like a KittenI'm actually really learning to embrace this concept..

Its taken a while and my husband loves that 43things is encouraging me to do it..
  • I give away books as I finish reading them
  • I’m not saving everything (that I “might” be able to re-use
  • I’m regularly going through my wardrobe and drawers and tossing stuff away and encouraging my husband to do the same
  • I’m not buying anymore NEW stuff until all the Other stuff is either used or thrown away! 3 years ago
