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.

wishing 43t wouldnt go

I heard this site will shut down, and I am disappointed because there’s a lot of good things written here, not only the goals but the achievement of those, the how-to’s, etc.

I enrolled in this website that is a referral kinda deal – you click and I win, no need to enroll or download anything – so I am dropping the link here to anyone interested in helping me or who would like to enroll and share your link to gain some $$:

This year. Yes, it will be this year. My finals end next Monday and then I am going to write/edit/revise full-time.

Meditation, school, etc

It has been a while! Well, I am currently studying for my finals for college, and looking to apply to a couple places to volunteer. I posted in January that I restarted Silva Method, but after less than 2 months I stopped, which was a mistake. I restarted for June. I re-read my posts and my last one talked about smiling challenge which I should have continued this whole time. I want to try it, in order to avoid being pessimistic.

My goals are still the same, and procrastination is still my bad habit. I hope to post a better update next time.
