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.

fall in love with the right person
keyword: the right person.

My first instinct was to add ‘fall in love’ to my goals, but then I realize that I already have been in love. I just don’t fall in love with the right people. I know a lot of people argue that if you think you have falled in love you might be wrong, but honestly who is someone else to tell me if I have loved or not? Love is different for everyone, they way a person feels when they are in love varies from person to person. Either way, my new goal is to not fall in love with people who don’t deserve it.



stop procrastinating
I do it WAY too much.

I actually plan on procrastinating things, it doesn’t just happen. For example, when I was making my 43 things list, I set the reminders on some of them for a month because that is when I would actually start them. Saying you have goals is one thing, but actually working towards a goal after you say you have it is another.

I am going to work on stopping… starting tomorrow.



Get more sleep
Untitled

It’s 4:43 in the morning, and I am sitting on the internet making the goal of sleeping when I could be sleeping as we speak. Ever since school let out, I thought ‘YES! Now I can sleep all I want’... too bad that’s not the case. It’s only gotten worse since then. My friends stay out til all hours of the night, and I usually come home around 3, then wake up to work some mornings. There’s just too much to do instead of sleeping!
