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.

Worry less and relax about life in general (read all 7 entries…)
Still far from that goal

Oh, if I just could!
Lately I really feel I am not doing a good job with this. I am constantly afraid, scared and worried. I think most of it has to do with the direction that’s missing in my life and with the none existing structure. In a way I feel liberated by that, but on the other side I blame myself for it. I am pushing thirty now and I feel that the lack of direction, OK I admit, serious relationship, is a personal failure.

For the last couple of weeks I have just lived in my niche and I haven’t tried to change it, because I am afraid that I am acting from a place of desperation, and that would only attract the wrong kind of people.

Back on track...and it feels so good!

I have been hitting the hot iron classes lately and it starts to show. I haven’t weighed myself and I am not planning to do it anytime soon, but I feel better and I am more toned. And the best thing is that my energy comes back and I want to do more! :)
