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.

grow taller
I'm 15 and am 5.6

From what I’ve heard people continue to grow until they are 21 is this true. My parents are indian and my dad is 5.5 and my mom is 5.3, could I grow two or three more inches to 5.8 or 5.9. That would be amazing.

control my temper

I have a big problem controlling my temper. I have destroyed my relationship with my parents, my younger brother treats me like an idiot, and I was kicked off the tennis team for getting angry at my opponent. I believe anger, and anxiety are correlated in my situation.

Learn Spanish
Speaking Spanish

Even though I am not that fluent, I can understand the language, and am able to convey my point without any difficulties. Communicating in a different language is very useful, especially since a majority of the laborers, and immigrants in California, have a Latin American background, and are therefore native spanish speakers.
