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.

be cheerful regardless of any situation

this is so hard to do!!!
i need help!!!!

be happy as much as possible before life ends

its comforting to know that most of my life is filled with joy….
for one thing unhappiness would have contributed a huge part in my death…and would have left a sad impression on people that i love the most

be an adult regardless of childish feelings

Ive got to learn how to handle a situation where someone has to be the adult….i keep thinking how some things are so unfair, pouting, sulking like a 2 year old would, well no one can take care of my own problems and yes, sulking just doenst solve anybody’s problems…hopefully i can swallow my pride and take things as it is and move on

keep thinking happy thoughts

sometime i drown my brain with negativity, so much that its overtakes my body, its so easy doing that! even pores leak this stinkiness from me…it really does repel happy people away….

communicate better

got to watch my words…sometimes i dont know if things i say could hurt….got to express what is really going on instead of bottling things up…hopefully i get better at this….hopes of keeping my sanity…
