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 de-activated my Facebook

I never liked Facebook.

I simple was on FB because of my closest friends. Whenever I wanted to see pictures, I would go on and look. It was to know what’s going on with my 4 closest friends.
However, I never liked the website period and always stopped myself from leaving because of them. But for some reason, this evening, I just deleted it. I just deleted it, regardless of what my friends feel or would say.
Besides, what happened to ol’ fashioned phone calls? ;)

It's sad.

It’s sad really.

I always always always care about what other people think of me. If I want to go somewhere, I always think about how other people will receive me. If I’m late to class, I wouldn’t go in because I don’t want people to think I’m a bad student. If I’m visiting a friend’s house, I want their family members to like me. If I join a club, I want everyone to be my friend. But why? Why should I care so much about what other people think? Unless it’s wise advice, why do I care about other people’s opinions about me? Why do I allow it to run my life? Why do I focus on it so much?
I shouldn’t care about other people’s opinions. I should do what I want and do it boldly! Do what I want!
