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.

identify 100 things that I like about myself
this is an ambitious goal

I’m not trying to seek pity by saying that this is going to be a difficult goal. 100 things are a lot, but I know it is necessary if I am ever going to break through my wall of insecurity to really concentrate on viewing myself positively. So here goes nothing.

1.) I love to analyze. I can turn over a situation about 50,000 times in my head and look at it from that many angles. I am more than willing to rehash out any topic of debate with anyone for countless hours.

2.) I am aggressive. I strongly stand behind my beliefs and those I love and won’t hesitate to defend them in any situation. Not to mention I’m a killer rugby player.

3.) I can sing. In fact, I love singing. I love music, especially acoustic singer/songwriters, and I pride myself in keeping away from talentless mainstream music marketed simply for its entertaining illicit content.

4.) I can write one heck of a letter. I recently hand wrote a full fifteen page letter to a former boyfriend spilling my guys about the distance between he and I over the past few years, just to communicate that I miss his friendship. I was completely uninhibited, completely vulnerable, and actually sent it. What’s to come of it is still up in the air, but my conscience is pretty clear at this point.

5.) I’m a passionate, all or nothing woman. I either put 110% of myself into something, or I don’t do it at all. Hence my hesitation to make commitments.

Well, there’s 5/100. I’m on my way.
