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’m getting to a place where what’s in the past, stays in the past and leave it alone!! not easy but doable.


I started a job three months ago and though I have been asked to go permanent, I won’t. For one, I like to go to work and not feel that I’m not good enough; They take you on the first day and push you to do fast, fast, and to me you have to work your way on to that; Anyway, today, I was asked to wrap some things;(a nice envelope type procedure to put stuff in for hospitals) and was “asked” if I remembered how to do that? I said yes and did it; I feel a bit inadequate on this because I learned to do it but they got someone who was new there and taught her to do it while I was out due to injury and she got it; yet I understand that different strokes for everyone; so this is one thing I am really trying to overcome; to not let no one’s opinion hurt;
