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.

- The Robots.

meet a british person and have them visit me, and when they get here, run down the street shouting "the british are coming!"

It was totally awesome…!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Get over my fear of letting people down
My Phobia

I just relized it but I really worry about disapointing people, anyone; not just family or something but I don’t want to let someone down I want to live of of thier expectations of me. I guess that means I am also afraid to fail.

have a near-life experience (read all 2 entries…)
I know it says give up but...

I am putting it on hold, there is another thing I want to do more and I should wait on this anyway before the near death experience turns into dead me!

learn to forgive and forget. (read all 2 entries…)

Its acctuly not the forgiving part that is a problem, I forgive pretty easily, but no one knows that because I never let it drop, even if I am not mad about it I will go on and on and on… I think it really bugs people.

Learn to play the piano
I suck though...

It was sort of worth it, everyone tells me i will appriciate it later and i guess i sort of appriciate it already but still, i suck at it…

never feel helpless

I hate and I mean HATE feeling helpless, like there is nothing I can don, and no way that I can affect what is going on, it scares me. If I can go for even a week, without feeling the tiniest bit helpless, even at little things I will be happy.

have friends in every country of the world
It would be so cool,

to go anywhere and be able to meet up with someone that you know. You would have connections to everywhere!

Fall in love (read all 2 entries…)
Its back

I took it off for a while, becasue I don’t think I will ever fall in love, but then I thought, what the hell, I might as well put it up, its not like I have much control if I do or don’t.

Risk my life for something worth it
Risk my life/ Something worth it...

I dont know what I like more… risking your life has to give you a great adrenilin rush… but I really want to do something good with my life.

have better posture
The secret...

Well there are a couple things…

1) Horseback riding:
Especialy jumping. You haave to really arch your back in this exagerated motion and when you get off the horse it just feels easeir to keep your sholders back.

2) Support system:
My friends and I all helped eachother, if we saw someone slouching we would go over and straighten them up, very useful!

3) Standing against a wall:
You want your sholder-blades, heels, head and rear end all touching the wall.
Oh and…
4) Balence a book(s) on your head:
I don’t know if this actualy helps, but it sure can be fun, especialy when the books fall down and make a realy nice loud noise!

Read the Harry Potter books
A must read!

Everyone should read these books, they are awesome!

learn to snowboard

This is one of the most fun things that you can do! You fall alot while you learn, but the falls aren’t bad and it is all really worth it!

learn to ski
Fun, but snowboarding is better!

This is fun, but I prefer to snowboard, much more satisfing!

walk on a glacier
It was ok,

Its a cool idea, and neat knowing that you are standing on a glacier, but besides that not a big deal and it doesent feel too different from staning on ice or snow.
P.S. I was in Canada when I did this

Learn to pick locks (read all 8 entries…)
Thats it,

I have done it, picked a 5 pin lock, I am still leaving this up here though becasue I have lots of room for improvement. I am sort of ‘poking and proding’ instead of feeling for it carfuly. But I am deffinatley farther along then I was before.

Learn to pick locks (read all 8 entries…)
3 Pins so far...

I can pick up to 3 pins in about 10 secounds, I am so proud of myself, that is like the average super chepo desk/drawer lock. YEA!!!!

Get more sleep (read all 2 entries…)

It is so nice being able to get up when my alarm clock goes off…

Get more sleep (read all 2 entries…)
I am being much better about this,

I am doing this so well for the past week that I am going to consider it done!

bungee jump
There has to be an awesome rush!

Ok, this just seems like fun.

save a life
There is a Jewish saying,

“If you save a life, you save the entire world.” This is becasue every life has the worth of the world, sort of kinda like “all for one and one for all” in a weird sort of way.
