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.

Waste less time
To better myself

Although I don’t watch TV (as I don’t own one), and don’t live close to many friends – I find myself wasting time.
Either I sit and just surf the net or I sit and sulk about how my town is so boring; or my best tactic to waste time is to think about all of the projects and assignments for work I have to get done and how I’ll never be able to get them all done
So I have decided that, that is all going to change! Im going to promise to myself that work hours are for work only – no more chatting with co-workers for 90% of the day.
And instead of complaining about all the work I have to do – just pulling up my socks and getting it done…one step at a time.
I hope that I can complete this task – and if I can it will be a remarkable accomplishment

be more impulsive
Choosing yours impulses wisely

Im excited to become more impulsive – although all my friends say Im quite impulsive enough.
I disagree.
But I think what Im really after is being selectively impulsive – always saying “Yes” to fun things with friends when they come up, or learning something new etc etc.
I want to change the direction of my impulsive behavior to be one which is beneficial for myself as well as others.
Wish me luck!

learn a new word each week

The simplest definition of a zoonosis is a disease that can be transmitted from other vertebrate animals to humans. A slightly more technical definition is a disease that normally exists in other animals, but also infects humans.
