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.

hmm looking at my last post I want to almost change that. As much as I want to keep things light and fun its not my role to do that. Im not responsible for everyone’s happiness. I can do little things- send people on coffee runs, try and get them to do something else, and yes tell a joke or two- but its not not my role to make sure they’re enjoying the work

Wanting to bring out the best in people is great/ great for productivity too , but I cant put the burden on myself that ’ me not smiling enough’ is causing them to be tired miserable looking employees 4 weeks ago

Sometimes when im having a conversation with someone i like- I’m well aware of how this makes me sounds like im fourteen- I actively try not to smile. As if smiling somehow makes me seem too eager.. or gives me away too easily.
It’s actually pretty fucked. I need to stop that 3 months ago

this has been quite a rewarding goal. it was initially quite difficult to smile at strangers and now it’s becoming easier. there was one time when i smiled at an elderly and it took me by surprise that she smiled back! 3 months ago
