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.

be happy when i look in the mirror (read all 2 entries…)
It's all in your head


4 years ago I did a life makeover, mapping out what I wanted to achieve in my 30’s. I started up my own business, published a book, bought my own home… achieving the goals made me feel better about myself. Plus the recognition that I was getting as a result of becoming more confident fed an ongoing cycle that – unplanned – made me feel good about my body and who I am.

Before all this I was never happy with the person staring back at me in the mirror. These days, my body is still the same (although that’s changing since I’m now going to the gym regularly) and I look like I did 4 years ago (no plastic surgery, I mean). But everytime I see myself in the mirror I just love that person to bits.
