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 m working on my goals… 6 years ago


cogentdiversionMoving forward

I invited a friend to go with me to 3 different events. They all happen to occur this week. She said she wanted to go. And then about two weeks ago, she emailed to say that she was invited to go to Vegas with a co-worker. That’s fine and dandy, but the trip essentially meant she’d miss ALL THREE things she said she’d be up for doing with me. I felt a little stiffed, especially considering that she’d just gone to Vegas and will probably go again soon.

But I was determined not to let her ruin MY plans. I talk myself out of enough things and regret it later. And often if there isn’t someone around to go to the movies with or whatever, I will just stay home. But I was determined to go forward.

I bought one ticket to the Coldplay concert, so I will be seeing them tonight. By myself. But that’s okay. I can’t go to the second event (long story), but that’s okay. I can try again next month. The third event is a Feist concert at the Hollywood Bowl. I bought two tickets and just hoped I’d find someone else who wanted to go – and what do you know? On Saturday I did!!

So I’m excited for this week, and excited about that fact that I didn’t allow someone else to ruin my plans and that I went ahead with what I wanted to do. I just have to try hard tonight to not dwell on the fact that I’m by myself! 6 years ago

fazer em vez de querer… em vez de pensar como podia ter sido, fazer com que seja, não adiar e não esperar. Acreditar que se quero fazer uma coisa é pq é importante para mim. 6 years ago
