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.

Affirmations for Self-Esteem

There are many things I do successfully. (Write them down if you have to.)
I can improve my self-esteem by meeting my own expectations.
I don't have to strive for perfection to approve of myself.
My worth as a human being does not depend on achieving a perfect weight, or by being the smartest, or the most popular, or the fastest, or having the highest grades, or being the funniest, or having the coolest friends, or getting into the best school, or... (you fill in the rest !)
I alone am responsible for the decisions I make.
I am a unique individual.
Persistence will help me succeed.
Every mistake I make can be an opportunity to learn. I can't be afraid to make mistakes, this is how I learn to improve.
I deserve support and will ask for help when I need it.
I have the power to forgive myself for past mistakes.
I will treat myself as someone special.
I determine what success means to me.

Maybe I'm not so bad after all

I went on a date last night. And at the end of the evening, after over hearing myself tell “my story”, etc. I thought, yeah, I really like who I am. I’m actually a cool person. Someone, guy or girl, whatever, will be totally lucky, if I ever decide to embark on a relationship again. It feels good to get perspective, to get out of the eddies of self doubt in my mind. I have values. Maybe I am in a rough patch, but the core of things is still just fine. Very nice insight.

I was a cute kid!

Well, I’m starting here, I was a cute little kid. That I can appreciate about myself. I like remembering the time when I was so alive and not afraid of anything!
