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.

Birgitta MooreI'm still not the best

I still think to the same old same old crap most of the time. Every now and again though I am finding ways to think outside the box and do new things. Exciting things. My husband and I had planned to take a simple vacation next week, nothing fancy or too big, and on a whim we are now going to California to visit my brother. I’m so excited!! We also had a blast at our impromptu trip to the local hockey game. :) 22 months ago

I was definitely doing this as often as I can to the point I didn’t have anywhere to put my shoes and had shoes I never even wore because I had too many pairs. I’m talking like 2-3 shoe racks plus shoes in boxes in the closet and stashed anywhere they’d fit. I’ve since slimmed down my collection and donated a lot of my shoes to charity. I realized half the fun was buying them and wearing them for a time while they were fun and now its someone else’s turn to enjoy them. Plus I needed to make room for all the other shoes I wanted to buy ;) Now that fall is here and soon winter I’m definitely on the prowl for some amazing winter boots! 2 years ago

I’ve since excelled in this. I have my own job, own car, own apartment and the only person I depend on in any way is my husband because obviously we have bills together. We’ve furnished our apartmwnt with no one’s help and I buy all my own clothes, makeup, groceries, I care for my pets on my own. I won’t say I’m done with this goal because I’ll never stop needing to do on my own but I’m also still learning to be co-dependant with my husband. 2 years ago

The last couple years so many things have changed and I have learned so much about myself and what I’m capable of. Finding youself is a lifelong journey and I’m excited about it! Everyday I surprise myself and learn new things about what I do like and something I don’t like. More importantly over the last 2 years was who I do or don’t want to be friends with and the kind of people I surround myself with. That was always a big issue for me that made me feel very torn and I have finally found peace with it. I may not have very many friends right now but I also don’t have any negative people surrounding me. I’ve become open to trying new things, new ideas and perspectives. I’ve done more in the last 2 years then I’d ever imagined myself doing or trying. I feel like a stranger to myself at times but in a good way. Thinking about how far I’ve come amazes me but at the same time I know I still have a long way to go :) 2 years ago

I will say that I’m not nearly as afraid of a lot of things that I used to be but there are definitely a lot of fears still there. I’m still terrified of needles and getting blood taken or shots. I generally feel like I’m going to pass out and I cringe to the point of almost vomitting. I can however watch scary movies and be alone in my house where as before I would be so terrified. 2 years ago

Now that I’ve been working for a number of years and I’m out on my own I do have a tendancy to worry about money a lot but I do catch myself and try to cool my jets. I don’t want to be so relaxed about it that I come up short financially but I don’t want to over think it to the point of obsessing. Sometimes I just gotta take a deep breath and remember that not only is it going to be okay but now that I’m married I have a second person and income to depend on as well. I guess I still haven’t gotten used to that entirely especially since I was just getting used to depending myself financially when he came along. 2 years ago

I’m still learning day by day how to forgive. Mostly forgive WHAT happened and yes sometimes the people. I have figured out that sadly a lot of times people wrong you they aren’t sorry about it and I’ve found it very hard to forgive someone who isn’t sorry but I have found that it is possible to forgive a situation and what they did. You have to find forgiveness to find peace with it and move on. I’ve since gotten married and my husband is amazing at helping me face things head on and find my peace with it. 2 years ago

I’ve been working as a server for about 2 years now and I tend to encounter a lot of “regulars” at work and more often then not someone I immediately get that oh crap feeling from and just assume they are going to be a nagging mean customer turns out to be really awesome and a joy to be around. I’ve learned to really give people the benefit of the doubt, for the most part. I won’t say I’m perfect or I don’t ever get that oh crap feeling but at least I put the feelers out there to prove or disprove myself. 2 years ago

Definitely been buying dresses over the years but am still motivated to always be buying more :) And of course wearing them as often as possible. For this winter I’d love to get some sweater dresses and thick tights and just rock em. 2 years ago

I have improved dramatically in most aspects and of course I’m still a work in progress but mostly when it comes to household things like doing laundry, dishes, picking up the living room lol. I’ve gotten good at handling all my other business in an efficient fashion. 2 years ago
