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.

speak more clearly
Yeah, I'm a mumbler.

Like a lot of people below have said, I’m tired of having to constantly repeat what I have to say to others. I need to stop turning away when I talk, and when I do face people, I need to start enunciating words better to make my message clear.

Any suggestions on how to attempt to do this? I realize it won’t happen overnight.

stop lying
What starts out small keeps growing...

I’m not a person who is dishonest in general, for example, I would never cheat or backstab someone through a lie.

But small white lies I tell, like exaggerating things I do or adding details to make myself look better, stop me from having more friends and make me have less respect for myself.

For the next two weeks, I will watch what comes out of my mouth more closely so I can regain confidence in myself that what I do is adequate.

get off the computer
So much temptation...

Okay, I think I’ll start by just limiting myself to this site and checking email and Facebook no more than two times a day, but I need find a way to stop obsessively checking news or spending hours watching videos.

I think I should get off now.
