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.

How to love my body and write a loving body manifesto to avoid destructive thoughts

Your story is so inspiring...

I am learning more about myself and revealing myself again on n43 things, writing down the story and yes I am afraid…but your story seemed to make the fear go away…

My fear, was sounding like a broken record and being told, :”George, I am so sick of hearing about your this and that, your link to this past story and that past story, haven’t we heard enough, for gosh sakes George, shut up already, leave it alone…” I am still concerned but I will still write it and say, “I don’t care what people think and feel the fear and do it anyway…

Wasn’t it Eleanor Roosevelt who told people to do something scaring every day? So that you can go beyond your wildest dreams? I think there’s even a book out about a young woman and how she took Eleanor’s quote to heart for a whole yeas! She did something scary every day for a whole year, so she learn to grow…


George ;)
