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.

Get into graduate school (read all 2 entries…)

Got my acceptance letter awhile ago. I can’t explain in detail how I did it—I just gave it my all! :) Hard work, skill, a lot of luck. Just do your best and have backup plans!

make more friends (read all 2 entries…)

Oh, oh. So I’ve done my best to compliment one person each day (at least one, i’ve complimented 4 in a day!) and smile at anyone who catches my gaze. So I feel really proud of myself. You know, it’s little things. And I know my previous two friends would roll their eyes at me for being so proud of this. But you know? Baby steps. It might be second nature to them, but… I’m different, you know?

I’m different from them. Not a lesser person. :/

lose 20lbs (read all 2 entries…)
Making progress~

Originally was 157lbs, currently at 151lbs! It could be from stress, but… I’d like to think it’s from me attempting to do things right and be healthy. But eh, we’ll see, won’t we?
