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.

and anger at myself.

Today in church the pastor was talking about how instead of bringing ourselves before god our natural response is to either pump ourselves up ( its not that bad bro) or beat ourselves up.
And I am the frickin latter for sure.

So glad Ive been surrounded with freinds that comfort me…
because hell it seems like any time I try and find a distraction im reminded of him… ( any books, a long drive etc.)


one person can be the change


this is a hard one for me. Im a leo… by nature I can be unpredicatble. It means at times i can be the freidn that stands up for you.. . but at most often tiems i come accross as the friend that you have to please( which is certainly not what i want in my friends).
Regardless when it coems to down to my anger or frustration or other emotions i let them take me to places where i just dont care. Be it friendships that seem to be fairweather, dissapoit. I just submit. ” Ok he belongs with me.. but whatever they’ll break up eventually .. maybe?” ” whatever i’ll let her do well she a docuhe anyways”
while it can be lonely at times, its really just self preserving. and it has to stop. Life isn’t all the person wont always win the races. only if you let them…
