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.

AlienmartThe Most Important One

Remembering to forgive yourself. That’s important. It’s not an excuse to give up or anything like that, but relizeing that no one is perfect, and that there is always hope is the single most motivational factor in my life. I go through low spots many times, where after a period of success, something changes and everything sort of just flops. It haunts my nightmares on occasion, but I’ve learned to have a fighting spirit. One that doesn’t let those dreams tell me that everything is always going to be this way. Don’t let anyone or anything tell you there is no way out of dispare or mistakes or fuckups. Unavoidable and avoidable tragedies happen in everyone’s lives. It’s ok to feel down sometimes. It’s ok to have a bad day or week, but as long as you don’t give up you can remember that everything changes. Doors open and close. Remember we are all in this together. 9 months ago

AlienmartThings That Helped Me

I felt pretty good exercising and eating healthy. Less meat, more veggies, and occasionally dark chocolate.

I felt good when I looked at all the possibilities for the future.

I Started drinking Stackers2 B12 shots. They have a bunch of vitimns and crap that improved my mood and my energy. It got me out of bed.

Hanging out with people always got me in a good mood. For the sake of being a part of a community I joined a church and became involved. They were very welcoming.

Volunteering, and helping people with their problems made me feel proud and accomplished.

Listening to upbeat music.

Dark Chocolate (but only like an ounce, eat too much and your good time just turns to guilt.) 9 months ago
