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.

be more confident (read all 23 entries…)
I feel even more confident

I just feel more confident lately and it is such a great feeling. I am now walking more and more with my head held high they I do get nervous about it and put my head down at times.
I try to be more out going in situations too but find myself uncomfortable but I am trying to work on that too and hopefully will overcome it.
I think it is helping by getting out more and going more places alone without someone with me I don’t know like with my driving lesson today.

I just feel a lot more confident of late though I am still a long way off :O)


It’s a good idea to go places alone, where you can reflect.
I notice that when some people are given an opportunity to look at themselves, they tend to look towards distractions to come between that time, however short it may be. Anything to take their minds off of themselves.
This is getting away from what you were saying, but I think it’s wonderful you’re doing things on your own as well.
