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.

be more confident (read all 3 entries…)
Going Backwards Instead of Forward

I seem to have falling back into a lot of my old habits of putting myself down and I can’t seem to shake them. It’s been hard to get myself back on track but I’m not going to give up. I just wish I can gain the confidence I need and stay that way.

build a performance mustang
Where do I start?

Bouncing around the idea of building my v6, swapping in a 5.4l v8, or a 5.0l v8 into my 2002 mustang. Or just finding a fox body to build up.

become more active
On my way...

So to kick this goal off I’ve started walking at least once a week after classes. It’s great because it clears my head and I can go off the trail and walk along side the river (big outdoorsman type)! Also can feel my legs gaining more strength. So far I feel great and I’m hoping to get outside as much as I can this time around. Have a great day y’all, stay active!

See all entries ...
