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.

Just remember

I always try reminding myself that if I don’t pass a class, I’ll have to repeat which will require twice the time, twice the energy, twice the effort, twice the amount of paper and pencil used… that’s if I’m lucky because we don’t always get second chances. It seems to work for me.

be less awkward
awkwardest for sure...

I’m probably the most awkward person to ever roam Gods green earth. I have very few friends and since I went to college (2yrs now), it got much much worse. I’ve almost isolated myself completely, never go out. I don’t think I look awfully ugly or scary, but I feel people like idk fear me or something. I am very quiet and most of the time silence doesn’t bother me, it’s speaking and risking screwing things up that bothers me. I swear sometimes I’ll be in a group setting and I might have ideas to contribute, but I just don’t say anything because I hate attention and feel that they won’t accept what I say or think. I just never really know what to say at the right moments and it takes me a (long) while to open up to people I meet..ughh it’s really bad. It’s not at all healthy. Gotta fix pronto!
