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.

LynnaiiHm...and how to not lose oneself is a good question

“To venture causes anxiety. Not to venture is to lose oneself.”
- Kierkegaard

What about venturing makes it possible for someone to not lose themself? And it seems, from Kierkegaard’s statement, that either way, there are some cons. Which is the bigger “loss” ultimately? Do we want to bear with anxiety or bear with becoming someone we’re not? Or being lesser of ourselves. This is of course, assuming we’re taking his statement as true. 6 years ago

LynnaiiA personal interest!

Psychology is an area that I love and adore. I simply want to learn more about it. I’ve taken some basic courses but I don’t have time to take lectures – and lectures bore me anyway. So maybe I’ll just read some books on my own for fun. I think it could help me with how I see myself and others and learn more about the interactions between people.

How exciting! I should hit up the library sometime this month…pick up some interesting books. :) What a fantastic idea. 6 years ago
