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.

RavenFoxFriendly cafe

Currently I work for a large child care organisation in Australia, fast becoming the largest. One of the things I’ve wanted to do for years, and what working in this environment has reminded me of, is that I want to work for myself. I want to do it my way, be my own boss.

I have picked up skills in hospitality, customer relations and communications in past employment. I have been recently studying small business management through books and looking at writing business plans. I am going to enrol in a small business management course soon so I can have further knowledge.

I have my ideas for what sort of place I want to own. I plan on opening one cafe and when its successful, opening a second over the other side of town within 3 years.

I will start by working in my cafe, but the plan is to have staff run it and I only come in in the afternoons to prepare the cooking for the next day. 8 years ago
