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.

Pink peppermint-scented hot bath with confetti! Absolute heaven, and I have never quite been convinced about the whole bath-thing lol I read about 80 pages of a book, and had organic dark hot chocolate and there was violin music (live of course ;) drifting down the hallway…. wow! I’m converted!
Then I laid in bed and read more, enjoying how soft my peppermint-scented skin was :) 6 years ago

topsyturvyThe tide is changing

Tonight I said ‘no’ to a few things, suggestions and ‘helpful comments’ from friends. I had a candid conversation about the future today with my SO. I was honest and non-argumentative and he was receptive and actually responded with suggestions and plans we could both participate in together. I had a great conversation with my manager today re: my next step career-wise, and I think good things will come of it. Now I have cream on my very dry hands, tea steeping next to me and I’m about to go read in bed at a reasonable hour. Shocking! 6 years ago

playfulskunk2Things have got to change

I have decided to create a new account on 43 things to motivate myself into becoming the person who i want to be. the things on this new list are the things i need to change about myself before i can get on with living my life.
i want to put myself first because i have jsut realised that i have been putting other people in my life first (namely my fiance) and totally neglecting myself, and this has been to my utter detriment.
over the last 2 1/2 years i have put on alot of weight and my self-esteam has plummeted. this has got to change as the is not the person i truely am. 7 years ago
