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.

still

not called for some refresher lessons. guess the fear still has me in its grip.

i really need to do this.



i need

to call a driving instructor tomorrow. I need to get some refresher lessons so I can start driving again with a bit more confidence.

will call to see if I can maybe arrange 2 1 hour lessons sometime this week.



have

a business card for a driving instructer that offers refresher driving lessons, so planning to give him a call tommoorow to arrange a few lessons.

i haven’t driven properly for 2 and half years and i have never felt confident about it, so now its time to deal with this and over come this issue. i am buying my dads small car soon, and i want to feel confident in my driving.

i did actually take the car for a drive one night last night, but it showed me how rusty my driving was. so time to deal with this.

i need my independence back.



as

am buying my dads small car soon. have decided I will do 1/2 refresher driving lessons with an instructor. just to get comfortable with driving again, as its been 2 and a half years since I passed my driving test, and I haven’t really driven at all due to my slight fear and lack of interest in driving.

but its something I want to over come and I want that confidence and independence that driving brings.

im ready to start doing this. I want it.



i was

crossing the street today, walking home. and saw and old lady driving a car… waiting at the stop for cars to go past so she could turn and proceed… she actually could have driven through earlier, she was holding up traffic a little bit, but guess she was being cautious… remember thinking, if this old lady can drive… so can i.



after

not driving for months on end, i drove myself home from work today, and did some reverse parking outside my house.

i should drive more often. its on my mind alot lately. so going to try and do that.

im thinking of booking some refresher lessons with a driving instructor or some sort of driving acadamey school at some point.

i think its time to move past this fear. practice makes perfect. also want to buy a car, thats been in my head alot. if i owned and was paying off my car, then id definatly use the car alot. no matter how i felt



this is one

of my major goals for 2012. this is the year im gonna conquer the fear. i am determined!



should

really be doing this. hate this fear.



will work on this

more this week.

got to feel more confident as i drive. gonna keep faking that confidence till it becomes real.



this is

something that annoys me about myself :(
