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.

*Actually, I’ve discovered the perfect place:
50. Have a good 50th birthday and look to my past and be very very glad. That’s it, now I can die ;D
But I can’t die alone or without a thing, that’s the deal.

10 firsts rules to my life

First of all, I guess that one thing that I have to put in my mind while I’m doing this, is also what I know that I don’t want to loose and what I want to keep having in my life.

Well, these are the 10 important rules:

1. I always want to do my things with a good reason, I don’t wanna loose my good spirit and I also don’t wanna loose my good heart. And I have to have a good reason for everything that I do in my life because even if I did the wrong act, I wouldn’t be so sorry, because in some instant of my life I thought that I was doing the right/good thing and so, I should remember my convictions and try to not be so sad. This could be also always “think more before do something”.

2. I always want to do the things in my life as better as I can, remembering my wishes, and I also always want to have wishes to push me.

3. I don’t want never stop dreaming. This is the thing that makes me realize true self in that moment, since I was a little child.

4. Do everything in my life thinking in my happiness. Do the things that I love, be with the people that I love, be in beautiful places and all those things…!

5. Be even more stronger, but I don’t loose my sweet and simple way that exist in myself, to see the things, to threat the people, to love easily, to be careful, to be the kind and gentle person, to be lovely and lovable, to be the better person that I want to be everyday with my integrity.

6. Look back to my past self and think about her past wishes, dreams, thoughts – And then be satisfied and happy about my achievements.
Look to the little happy girl and make her self proud, first of all.

7. Always make the difference for someone, make someone smile, make someone happier, give attention and help.

8. “You’re never too old to grow younger.”
Grow without loosing my little girl inside my heart.

9. Expect the things but doing everything that I can to make it work, be ready and them the great chances will be there.

“I will study and get ready, and maybe the chances will come.”
- Abraham Lincoln

10. Never stop learning, learn with my mistakes and try to not do this mistake again. To be aware of my faults and work to correct them.
And also discover new talents in myself, always more!
