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.

stop letting others affect me and my goals (read all 6 entries…)
A man may not be an island on to himself, but a woman can be!

I am finding that silence is the key to reaching all my goals. Looking for support and expecting to get it from anyone other then yourself is just self sabotage. Silence is golden. I finally get that. I have looked around at the successful people I know and I have noticed that they don’t talk about what they are going to do. They just do it. All of a sudden you hear about there success and are like wow so that’s why they have been so busy. So after all these years I finally get it. Successful people plot and plan and act. They don’t go around looking for approval. Support is some crazy idea that we have been sold from years of watching feel good movies. Be an island onto oneself and watch your goals come to fruition. I get it. Got it. Here I go!
