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.

Think before I speak, be conscious of others feelings. Appreciate my babe EC.
My new love

He’s so refreshingly different. No matter what I say or do he doesn’t walk away from me. I’m done with the games and I want to concentrate on being happy and making him happy. I need out of my house and out of my slump. I love everything about him and I can’t wait to do everything we want to do together. He doesn’t deserve the old me, he deserves the new me. And that’s who I will be. For him and only him.

keep my room clean, even when im sad. (read all 2 entries…)

be as nice, friendly, forgiving and not judgemental as my mom
To Forgive

I recently started a job where I do intake for formerly homeless people. I knew that I had to put up a front as I did on both interviews. I went on and on about how I enjoy helping people. As usual I thought it was going to feel like any other job; draining and repetitive. I don’t like helping people, actually I really dislike people. I keep a small circle of friends. An even smaller mind frame if you understand that. Not close minded I just know or thought I knew who everyone was. I was in for a surprise.
I come in every morning and I love work. I enjoy the people I work with. Erin is one of my co-workers, I think she’s amazing. She trained me on my position and is so great at it. Not just because she expresses herself so well or is extremely knowledgable. The reason is because I can tell that she enjoys helping these people. I can’t blame her, it feels really great.
It feels so good brightening up these peoples faces just a little if not more.

I am still working on forgiving people. I find it easy to let go of memories. I don’t know if this means i’ve forgiven them, which I don’t think it is

to be continued . . .
