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.

Wash my face every night before I go to sleep
I'm sick of having pimples

I don’t want acne but for some reason it is hard for me to get into this habit.

fall in love with someone who is in love with me, too
Almost completed this goal

I did have someone tell me that they loved me. I told them I loved them too. But I don’t know how sincere it was. It was said on only the second time I saw the person.

be more positive
negative thoughts about self and others

I am extremely hard on myself. It is hard to stop the negative self-talk that goes through my mind since I was overly criticized by my parents. They constantly treat me like I don’t know what I am doing. I actually say negative things about myself in conversation a lot. I think I need to stop doing that so much because I don’t want to broadcast my low self-esteem to everyone. I want to stop saying bad things about other people too. This also shows low self-esteem and prevents me from completing my other goal which is to be kind.
