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.

James 1:12

“Blessed is the man who endures temptation, for when he has been approved, he will recieve the crown of life, which the Lord has promised to those who love Him”. This is one of my mottos, because each day I am faced with temptation, but when I am tempted I think of this verse and look towards my eternal reward, and then I’m not tempted!

stop beating myself up for old mistakes
Let Go

I keep looking back on the bad things I did, and though I know I should really forget them and move on…they seem to be attatched to me. And those bad memories don’t want to go away. I really wish I could just forget them all…forget cheating on a math test, rejecting my boyfriend’s offer to go on a date…and so much more…everyday seems to be a fight to be optimistic. Sometimes the worst part of it, is knowing that nobody knows your pessimisticness, your sadness….I have to move on. I HAVE TO MOVE ON! And that is another goal of mine….the hardest goal by far!

Meet Miley Cyrus in person...
