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.

be less jealous

” One of the hardest things to believe is the Bible’s declaration that each one of us is specially designed by God. “For we are God’s workmanship”(Ephesians 2:10) According to the Bible, you are a one-of-a-kind, original masterpiece. You have been beautifully designed by God.” Youth Walk Devotional Bible

be less sensitive
Why cry...

Not everyone is trying to hurt me. I just have to keep that in mind. I have to be able to think more rationally. Some things may come out wrong such as an attack or harsh criticism but could very well be for my advantage. I have to remember that people may not see things the way that I do and that is okay. There should just be more communication.

surround myself with supportive people
Why Not...

I feel like I could use more supportive people in my life. I feel like I deserve to have someone there for me the way that I am there for everyone else. Why is it that I care so much about how other people are and they don’t feel the same about me?
