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.

list one thing every day that was positive (read all 126 entries…)
Positives 17 March 2012

I have been having a truly horrible time lately. Just awful, and I can’t talk about it online (sorry). So I need to start doing these again.

1. I love my job(s)! They are so interesting! I don’t even mind getting up in the morning.
2. A great morning at work. It’s good to feel useful.
3. Had a good idea for two birthday presents.
4. Was able to help L out this afternoon when she was ill.
5. Bumped into Y in town and handed L over to her.
6. G said I was a good friend and came to me at the cafe, and we had a nice chat.
7. A woman gave me her parking ticket so I didn’t have to pay parking.
8. A great workshop with six clubbers inc one newbie, and two of my regulars were super-enthusiastic about my work.
9. A productive and honest chat with N from the cafe about my arrears – says he may be able to cut them in half and halve my future rent, which would make it more feasible for me to carry on running the workshops.
10. Y said D said I had beautiful skin. Aw!
11. Supportive and lovely text and messages from friends.
