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.

never be afraid to speak my mind
Fear of feeling guilty of speaking your mind

As a current “not speaking my mind” club member I’ve been having the same problem, only..I can speak my mind occasionally to certain people but not to ALL. I’m afraid of feeling guilty of something and other’s taking it personally. I don’t want to hurt people in the process of speaking my mind, and my ideas. It’s time to make a positive change, for my personal relationships. My family life. and Anything else that might come my way, I’d be gladly appreciative of anyone’s Ideas or insights of the matter. Much Thanks.


jvtdc Getting off of my butt and getting something done!

I think that is most of us...

There are people in this world I can tell anything to, but to most, I do not. It is hard to speak what we really want to say to people for just the reasons that you state. I really don’t think there is anything wrong with that… Maybe I’m wrong, but that is how I am.
