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.

To become more outgoing is a personal goal of minefor many reasons, My viewpoint on outgoing is just to be upbeat and positive. I find this to be easy in most situations just not the ones that help me out. Around Family and Friends I am happy and talkative and so on….but around people I don’t know I am a total ASS. Not because I want to be, just because I am so uncomfortable just carrying on a conversation with a stranger, anybody with me on that? Like waiting in line for something and you can feel THAT GUY just smiling like a dumbass at you waiting to make just enough eye contact so he can bring up how the weatherman can’t be trusted and in most likely in 30 seconds of Conversation will also bring up how his kids are smokin doobies and his wife is a tramp. Haha I mean I have had some of the most bizarre exchanges on the planet people just come up and go off on these Tangents bout their lives…It has to happen to other people because theres nothing special about me in that aspect. I blame them for me not being more out going and sociable. Now, any time I feel like pleasant converation somewhere I gotta worry ” Is this dude crazy? or this woman looks nuts, I better not” That is soooo not fair and it drives me insane. In summary, I didn’t really address my goal nor did I create any constructive advice, I just wanna know if people have experienced these lunatics and have any advice on how to deal with them other then LISTENING or Telling them their inept.

Here is a picture of one of these Crazies…..bye bye

see mudvayne in concert again


be more outgoing (read all 2 entries…)
Outgoing, going...gorillas

I defeinitly am more of a reserved person when it comes to meeting new people. I have the same 6 great friends I have had since I was in high school. That is something I would never give up, the closeness , the commradere it’s the most important thing to me. Howeevr, I am in the Navy and You ain’t exactly home all the time. I need to lossen up and be myself more often. Also, finding that special someone would be great too.

See all entries ...
