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.

And then she danced

It’s definitely happening. I feel like someone opened the curtains – the heavy ones that didn’t let the sunshine into my window.
I feel like loving more.
I appreciate more.
I can enjoy more.

Therefor, I can experience more.

not giving up...

I’m not giving up, just tired of posting it all the time. : ) I can still acknowledge the things that make me happy and not write them down. I just feel like I am over this goal of recording them.

Doing better :)

I’m caring less and just getting my feelings out there. It feels nice. :)

I don’t think I can choose just one thing. Today was overall freaking awesome, saw some great people and had a good day at work. Laughed and smiled lots :)

Tricia’s parents are so funny.



stop driving with a lead foot
Blah.

Soooooo getting better gas mileage sounds nice. I’m going to be way more conscious of the way I am driving.

Spent time with an old friend :)



focus on making myself happy
laugh out loud.

Maybe I’m just a little irritated right now, but I am done thinking about someone else all the time. I need ME thoughts.

I am always so afraid of hurting someone’s feelings. I feel like I can’t focus on my own life and make myself happy when I ‘might be making someone mad.’ I want to start making myself happy and telling people how I feel when I am not happy with a situation and stop holding back. This goes for several other things.

I want to speak my mind and not fear any negative reactions.

Just one of those things...

I feel like it’s just a life experience that should be had. Like competing in a man vs food challenge. Or bungee jumping.

To live instead of exist (read all 2 entries…)
:)

There will be a day when I can feel at peace with myself again. I feel like I am just here, just existing in this life, almost as if I were watching myself live. I don’t know if this makes any sense, but it is how I feel.

I know it will take some time. It will take some changes and some determination. It’s liberating; even just this plan of wanting to live. I already feel like I am one step closer by realizing I need to change some things.
