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.

have more self control (read all 2 entries…)

i know this is possible, one of my most attainable goals. but i just can’t seem to get there all the way. have i am improved yes, i think so. i still have a ways to go, but i have gotten better. the question i have now is am i being to hard on myself? no one can be perfect all the time. and yet, i know i will still have the hurt and disapointment inside of me everytime i do fail. i’ve got to try a bit harder if i want full success!

keep a diary
late start

well i have a diary that was keeping pretty reguarly but i fell out of it some months ago and now im finding it hard to get back to the routine! i did buy a journal specifically to record happy and inspirational things…qoutes, lyrics, scriptures, stories etc etc. already i love doing it! maybe this will also bring back the desire to write in my diary again.

Make new friends (read all 2 entries…)
this one is tough, part 2

well i realy wish i could just snap my fingers and there my new friends would be, with drama free open arms. i know how naive but surely theres people out there who don’t live in drama bubbles. sometimes i wish i could just tell me friends what i think, how ofen they get on my nerves and how i don’t trust them. but i think that would spiral out of my control real quick. and honestly, its just not worth it to me. is that horrible? that i dont even care about my realtionships enough to try and fix them? ugh my feelings are so muddled. new friends would make it so much easier to make a clean break from the old ones.
