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.

find a place to call home
new beginnings

after a messy separation I need a new home, all alone, boo hoo

overcome my fear of social situations

just had to chamge my world view, reinvent myself and take control of my life in a positive way….. hope it lasts

have more confidence
death is confidence trick

I was never aware of lacking confidence being a problem until watching my father died suddenly, the experience changed my family,right before my young eyes I saw only communication breakdown, loss of faith and hope but especially the onset of depression, this continued on into my late teens when finally my head broke into fragments which to this day have never really functioned again especially socially. My second daugher Ruby is now 4 and she lives a life between a depressed father and manic mother, I need to get back some shape of normality and confidence. but how ?
