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.

improve my phone anxiety (read all 12 entries…)

Still chugging along with this… although I don’t think I have made much significant improvement since my last entry on this goal. At least I haven’t regressed. I still feel like I’m not making enough personal phone calls; the only time I’m using the phone is if it’s absolutely necessary. I need to work on that. I will call my friend tomorrow…


inneedofinspiration Ready to keep working on these!

I have the exact same problem

It gets me in trouble at work all the time. It’s not the abuse of the phone…it’s the regular use!

When you find the cure for this let me know!

I’m sorry to hear that you suffer from it as well, the anxiety can be very crippling. I think that the only cure is to use the phone as much as possible to get used to it and gain more skills and confidence. Good luck to you.

Thank you! Your positivity and encouragement really means a lot to me! This has definitely been a challenge for me and continues to be. I think the hardest part was actually realizing that I had a problem here and deciding to tackle it as you said, instead of ignoring and denying it. Thanks again. :)
