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.

ladybird wants 43T to stay

Deal better with ADHD (read all 4 entries…)
this has no sence any more

since childhood i developed intricate system [i cant remember exact word] that help me appear “normal” e.g. i learned and usually managed to hide that i function totaly different than anybody else, something i allways knew. and something noone could understand. as you all know.

it is not that hard to trick almost everybody (and avoid the rest) since there is no public sensitivity to this issue.

i start to grow tired of all that pretending. it is not that it is difficult (it is!); it is not that i don’t know how long i’ll get away with it (i don’t!); it occured to me today that it simply has no sence. i want to be what i am.

i need career path, my niche, that uses my unique traits to my advantage instead of hiding them.
