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.

see the good in people
My tragic flaw!

This is brobably my major flaw, my tragic flaw! I always pick faults in people, my friends especially, and I end up getting aggravated and annoyed over little traits and habit of the people around me. It’s stupid. I know. I have a hundredfold more faults than all my friends put together, and yet I continue to look down at every weeny mistake they make. It’s me that has to change, I don’t need new friends because eventually the sam ething would happen over and over. I don’t really know how one would overcome such a thing as this… and see the good in people. I think about some strategies I can putin to place to change this stupid mindset of mine. I’ve even started having dreams where people I know are really mean or stupid and I wake up angry with them before the day has even begun. It has to stop. Now. Any sugestions? Apart from using paragraphs.
