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.

why do I refuse to do what I know it good ?

I know writing is good for my soul.And there was a time I really injoyed it. so why now at this point in my life, when if at any point it was so critically i write, I dont !. Shame on me I say. Not guilt, but shame. But not unredemable… There is another choice. Just start where I left off. Stop cutting yourself so mu slack and get with the programme. Pain can only be felt by the self. The programme is it know they self through expression. Knowlegde is power.

be happy and content living an abundant life of bliss connected to family and friends (read all 3 entries…)
that all well and good but what if...

nobody actually gives a rats arse, about you and your life? What if the family and friends dont want to be connected to your life/home. It really very hard to remain adult about it.

control the lack of impluse and instant gratification , personality deficits (read all 2 entries…)
defineing the parameters

Its all very well learning to say no, but it has to be seen in light of what does one say yes too.
