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.

remember people's names

I have an awful memory. While I can remember about people and where I know them from, I am terrible with names. I forget the names of people I eat lunch with everyday. Because I normally cant remember their names I just avoid saying them. I talk to so many people without knowing their names. I really need to find a way to remember them better.

not let my rage take over

I can control all my emotions because I was taught to when I was little. However, one I never could seperate from was anger. Which means when I get mad, I get REALLY mad. Even my best friends are terrified of me when it takes over. I would never hurt them but the look in my eyes is enough to make even my guy friends nervous to make me angry. But I am a friendly person and my emotions go rapidly so if I’m pissed at one person I normaly dont take it out on others. I confront the person as soon as I can and get it out because when I hold it in, it eats away at me. I really want to work at seperating myself from this potentially dangerous emotion for fear of one day letting it take over to much.

learn to speak welsh

This language seems like alot of fun. And since I would like to live in Wales one day, I want to be able to speak the old language.

fly a helicopter

I want to fly a helicopter one day. I think it would be amazing to fly out durring a hurricane and rescue people in the ocean. The air just makes me feel so free because it is one of the last places people havent developed. You cant tame the air. You can catch it and use it to your advantage, but never tame it.
