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.

Home from college now!! I did a major room overhaul! It’s like something just clicked in my brain, and i was sorting through stuff and asking myself “do you really need this?” and 80% of the time i’m like “NOOO!” so i threw it away. I love simplifying your life. makes things 100 times easier. It must be a feng shui or however you spell it thing : ) 7 years ago

My father is such a pack rat. He has slide rules and various other very old antiquities but among his collection is mostly JUNK. Sadly enough, I have inherited this disease. I tend to hold on to things that “you never know if you will need” it.

I just recently moved into an apartment and dumped A LOT of junk and I will focus on not collecting stuff that will clutter my life. 8 years ago

Saving junk has been alot more difficult now that i’m sharing a dorm room with three people. There is limited space and i guess that’s good because it forces you to realize what you really need and what you really don’t. 8 years ago
