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.

stop wasting time
hum drum

every day it seems like i’m just wasting time until i can get through it. then start all over again. why?? what’s the point? i would really like to be more interested in living. what’s wrong with me????????

really live life

I’m so tired of floating through life. I feel very disconnected from the actual living of it. Why don’t I want to get into life and live it? Why am I content to sit by and watch other people live it? Well, not really content so much as unmotivated.

be more affectionate to my husband

A photographer friend of mine took some sexy pictures of me to give to my husband as a gift. I was so surprised how much that process affected the way I feel about and view myself. I would suggest finding a way to feel sexy for yourself before trying to feel sexy for someone else. Change happens from the inside out.
(btw, they were classy, sexy photos, not raunchy or anything. I don’t think that would have been a positive expression of what’s inside me.)
