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.

Sometimes it's hard but it can be really fun.

It depends upon the group of people. If they get along and are focused, it can be really good fun. If not, well, we’ve all had that experience.

For me the challenge was to let other people be in charge. I am used to doing things by myself and it took time to let others direct the activities.

I overlooked the obvious.

I do this at work and I hadn’t really thought about it. I was looking for this in my social life instead of at work. In a sense, this has been sccomplished.

A small success

but a group of us hosted a potluck at work. It was fun and a lot of people worked to make it happen. So I can say that I did work with a team of people on this.

What’s next? I work with teams at work but we don’t often accomplish things…

Another Life Skill

knowing how to accomplish goals by working with a group of people is important. I find this especially difficult as I prefer to work on my own. And it’s almost impossible if I don’t like some of the people in the group.

Any suggestions?
