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.

what I did or do again (read all 422 entries…)
Panda balaclava mask party

1. More rec stuff today. Also my new boss spoke about how in the rec review I get to talk to the boss of the centre. I’ve already chatted with him, people seem to know my name and what I’m doing quite a lot especially people at the top. Not too sure if that’s good or bad.
2. I’ve not spoken to anyone in the business but no one has tried to speak to me which does make me think that really I wasn’t a part of it.
3. We we all laughing today
4. Need to be more like GW really
5. Not a lot done and it’s my bad :( but then I shouldn’t complain because again my bad.
6. Negativity pushes people away but normally I come across as positive and happy go lucky with just a tint of sadness



Maybe…but you usually end up making me smile :)

Honestly if I can say I’ve done something to make a person smile then that is a victory. People don’t smile enough.

john_swale has gotten 10 cheers on this entry.
