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.

Get my head on straight

Recently I have graduatd from highschool and I keep telling myself that all of this is going to be okay and go smoothly. Although I know its not and that i have to work for it. I am going to try to get my head on straight and do my best to get my life straight.

be less controling

My boyfriend and I have been together for over 4 months. Right now I’m not in town and he went to have fun with his friends. He drank a little bit and when he told me for some reason i got a little jealous and I almost freaked out on him. I really do love him and I don’t want to lose him to being stupid and controlling so I’m going to try to be less controling and let him do what he wantes without a leash.

control my anger
Anger control

I always lose my anger so easily. I have a job and it pushes me more and more. The people that come through sometimes just drive me up the wall. Also, stress is a big thing that makes me frustrated and when someone says the wrong thing thats when I let loose. I need to work on controling my anger so I wont hurt as many people and be able to be more happy than angry all of the time.
