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.

Fall is approaching! This season I will let something go (let it fall away). I'll surrender a habit, a person, an excuse I keep using. I choose to surrender it and move forward in my life. This will set me feel free ;)
Adding another year to our age isn't a big deal.

I should always remind myself of that statement above.
What I noticed was that I always felt scared of getting old. I don’t know but it becomes an “annual fear” everytime my birthday is coming.

A few days ago, I was feeling feverish again, kind of a psychological illness about getting OLD but good that I had my colleagues and friends here to comfort me.

Now, I should let this FEAR fall away this season…

I know I can do it.

Acceptance is the key. I am 31 now and I am happy about being one.

Thanks for enlightening me Hermes!

You’re so right, we are still very very young! We can still do a lot of worthwhile things for ourselves and for the people around us…

I must cherish this comment from you dear Bettina. Thanks soo much…

Have a superb day!

PS: Wow it’s so nice to discover that you’re a teacher too..

horay for thirtysomethings :o)

I heard that “30 is the new 20”

I’ll be 33 in December. I know that my physical self is not as “young” as it used to be and that is kind of depressing sometimes…but I LOVE my “older” mind, my grown up self-confidence, and more mature sassier attitude in general.

venusian has gotten 5 cheers on this entry.


I want to:
