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.

and the guitar is collecting dust. Maybe it is not my thing afterall?

Allow myself to be intimate and open and not be afraid

Well, a few weeks ago I entered a relationship. Strangest thing was, I am so used to guys taking the relationship easy, and going with the flow. not this time. found myself a real communicator, and someone full of feelings and depth. so much so that it turns out I am the quiet one, the unavailable one. however, I am slowly opening up, and it is going well. I am allowing him to get close and allowing myself to be open. Feels scary, but good!

learn the guitar (read all 2 entries…)

I have found a guitar store in a nearby town, and I have found online lessons. I have also put the cash aside to buy it, now I just have to go and buy it. I am stalling for some reason, but the stalling feels good. Feels like I am really asking myself if this is something I am going to accomplish. so we wait and see…
