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.

I hated learning how to drive. Dad insisted on teaching me, which usually meant he’d withhold lessons if I’d been “misbehaving”. I never got professional lessons until about 18 months in, and by then it was too late, I think – I was terrified of driving. It took me 3 attempts to get my probationary license and when I finally did I had the bitchiest testing officer in history…but I got 96%.

I drove to school (ten minutes to half an hour away, depending on which campus. I drove to the library and clothes shopping (ten minutes). Grocery shopping (twenty minutes). But whenever I say I’m going somewhere more than half an hour away, Mum gets “worried out of her mind” (direct quote) and fusses over me so much that it’s easier to just not go anywhere.

I want to fix that. There’s so many places I want to go, and I don’t know where to start not being so afraid. 3 years ago
