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.

overcome anxiety (read all 4 entries…)
Something to remember...

This anxiety/depression/irritability …I have felt it all before, several times. It passes. Whether it lasts for hours or days or weeks – it does eventually pass. Even remembered only 2 weeks ago, the first week of my LearnDirect course, I felt fine then. So I’ve only felt like this for 2 weeks, just got to see it through. Everytime I go through this it makes me stronger, because it encourages me to be strong and carry on despite how I feel, and know that everything will resume as normal in due course; it is going to be okay.


unfinished_girl realist.romantic.indecisive.that's about it!

You're gonna be fine :)

When I’m anxious/depressed I always try to remember that the feeling will pass and try to focus on the moments I felt fine…the best thing is try to distract yourself and keep busy doing things that can make you feel more comfortable until you naturally feel better again…You’re gonna be fine :) Good luck!
