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 get over my fear of people


Fear of people

I have had the same problem for about 5 months now and everyday it gets worse. I don’t want to go out of my house, or if I do go out of the house, anytime I go anywhere I put my head down so no one will look at me!!!

I will not answer the phone unless it is someone that I want to talk with. I feel dizzy ALL the time!! This is the worst feeling in the world!!! :-(


I fell the same… I know that is geting worse because I’m crying more frecuently, even during the day… I don’t want to look people in the eyes… I hate myself for being this way… I’m going to star going to terapy, but I think it have no solution… I don’t know what to do about it…

TenaciousTomo is deciding on what targets he wants to set :D

Well Done

Thats some committment to spend 5 years on it, i have social problems too and i intend to solve them but am not looking forward to having to wait a few years for them to shine :/ I use Barack Obama confidence and speaking skills as an inspiration

krazykat4 has gotten 2 cheers on this entry.
