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.

i knew in order to get a job I had to believe in MYSELF. otherwise no one else would, therefore no one would hire me. so i just said fuck it. why is it i think i cant do this? i cant think of any reason. i just doubted myself. and why? i dont know if ill ever know. i guess i just didnt feel good enough. but for who? i dont know. im fine with myself. and for me, now, thats good enough. now that i got a job, and i know i am doing my job well i just believe. the doubt isnt completely gone. im always scared ill fail my new task. now instead of letting that stop me i just use that fear to help me complete my new task. and so far, so good.


i feel like a different person walking around. and thinking. the way i have been. instead of just assuming i cant do it, im always thinking “why not, its worth a shot, or im pretty sure i can do that.” it feels really good to believe in yourself again. i mean if YOU cant believe in YOU how can someone else?
