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.

Let go of the past (read all 4 entries…)
It's not that easy .

Sometimes I wish I could erase the things that happened to me in the past, because it has so much. Whenever I remember how many times I’ve felt worthless, I can feel myself crumbling inside. The things that I have gone through have made a huge impact on the person I am today. My past created this wall which keeps me from being the way I used to be before I was heart broken. Trust me, I try. And with time it has gotten so much better but there are those moments, those flashbacks when it all comes back and it feels like it was yesterday. I don’t know how I let people walk all over me but I guess it made me who I am today which is strong. Too strong. I know that I obviously can’t forget the past, I just need to let go of it and move on so I can focus on what’s important. The present.

Let go of the past (read all 4 entries…)

The last couple of weeks I was feeling great. I stopped worrying about the past because obviously there’s nothing I can change. Today wasn’t to great though & after doing so well I felt like breaking down. Although im not there yet, I know soon I’ll be able to put the past behind me where it should be.
