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.

find love (read all 2 entries…)
25th March 2013

I have recently developed feelings for the girl that sits next to me at work. We have worked together for the last 3 months and I do not exaggerate when I say that she is one in a million. From the moment we met we have had a connection, a rapport, we get on so well, we have the same interests and views about life, we are both equally nerdy and she has been to a lot of places that I want to go to. She laughs at my stupid jokes and I am really attracted to her. I feel I could be in a bit of trouble though. She has a boyfriend and I just cannot pursue her or tell her how I feel. My heart is broken on this one and I have had no choice in the matter! :(

My biggest challenge

This is my number 1 goal for 2013 and the thing I have found most difficult. I cannot say for sure whether I have ever been in love. Infatuation is possibly the closest I have been. It seems to have become so much more difficult in recent years to meet a woman that wants a straightforward honest relationship. A relationship between two people should be simple, uncomplicated, natural. Its the most natural and basic of human needs. However everywhere I go I see men and women struggling to connect at the most basic level. I will need all the help I can get on this one. I have been out of the dating scene for a long time, is dating even done anymore? I only ever hear of people “hooking up”. Where do I start? I think I need a period of preparation, maybe 40 days and nights, eating right, working out, updating my wardrobe, then what????
