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.

Be more optimistic
im a work in progress

i remember seeing shirts like that when i was kid. I dont want to wear my heart on my sleeve anymore, it seems i share too much. Im not sure why, but I know I want to change that part of me that some days seems to haunt me. I feel like my atmosphere is very negative at times and because I thrive on my atmosphere, I become weak in those times. I need to find the strength to change that and become more confident. As i write this, I know that Im alot stronger than I used to be. Im certainly not where I want to be in life and I wonder if that plays a big role in things. Part of my judgements come from jealousy and part of my judgement comes from the way someone presents themselves. They can never be combined as the judgement takes on a role of itself. After all that is said, I know in my heart that I need to stop. I feel as though I have created a habit that has lasted most of my life, so I need to treat like a habit. I need to remind myself that I am not perfect and I need to start loving people through there faults, flaws and victories. I thought I was pretty secure till I messed up a few weeks ago. I feel like I cant forgive myself and Im not sure how to fix it. I will take the right steps today and stop by the library and get a book on the subject of becoming more positive…..


I want to:
