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.

stop being lazy


ImJustBeckss has written 1 entry about this goal


I am such a lazy cow. I actually mean it and I know it. Everyone I know says I’m lazy and it doesnt offend me because I know its true. Yet I do nothing about it. I just shrug it off like it’s not a big deal and that its just a trait of mine. I shouldnt do that. So I’m going to change. I am going to get up out of bed to matter what. Not lie til the afternoon feeling sorry for myself. If someone needs help or needs something doing Im not going to say “later” or “do it yourself”. Im going to actually help and do it. By doing this not only will it make me not lazy, but it will make me a nicer, friendlier, more helpful person and will also make me feel more active and like I’m actually doing something with my life instead of lazing about doing nothing.
Don’t get me wrong, I do get up for college, but sometimes I just refuse to go because Im so nice and cosy in my bed and basically being lazy. That is going to change. Starting now.
