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.

el mnew thing...

i have been engaging in one-liners while passing by fun people at work… 2 years ago

el m3 mini goals - check-in

1) complete my sentences when speaking – i’m now noticing when i don’t complete a sentence [but not too good at actually completing said sentences]. but noticing while it’s happening is progress!
2) be a blurter – making improvements on this!
3) express unpleasant feelings – recently, i have communicated stress to my boss, i have spoken up to my ex- when things come up, i’ve shared with colleague and mother about sadness feelings but other than that i haven’t had chance to practice this much. 2 years ago

el mmini goal

-complete all sentences

i often start a thought and drift off or allow someone to interrupt me.
will work on completing all of my sentences :) 2 years ago

el mtoo much thinking?

one of my main barriers to being more expressive is that my words do not just flow. i think and rethink what i will say before i say it. this is one of the reasons i choose alcohol. it makes me feel normal. not super controlled, just natural.

i’d like to be more of a blurter – speak without censoring myself. i wonder how i do this without the help of ethanol. hmm. 3 years ago

el mUntitled

i definitely am more expressive at work and with friends/family. i engage in small-talk more than ever.

here is the big challenge – i would like to be able to express negative feelings that i have in a healthy way. i tend to not express these, but quietly seethe. and sometimes, eventually explode! o-:

this is not good for my relationships or my health. i’ll work on this when the opportunity presents itself. 3 years ago

el mopportunity

thursday i have a job interview – a perfect opportunity to be expressive. all eyes [and ears] will be on me… 3 years ago

J_SmithThat is why I signed up for 43 Things.

Maybe I will start a blog, even. It is easier for me to express myself through writing because I don’t have to worry about what someone will say, just what they will write. lol 6 years ago

emiredOn reflection.....

I’ve decided that I am good at expressing myself so I don’t think I need this as one of my goals. 6 years ago

Malcolm85Break out of my shell

I am shy, very shy, but i am also energetic, fun, crazy, exhilarating beyond heights. But no one knows this but me. 7 years ago

Theresaright person

when you find the right person that allows you to express yourself, it’s so much easier to be able to do…it comes more naturally 8 years ago
