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.

I hate not being able to say what I am thinking, people don’t understand what I am trying to say. It’s like when I am telling a joke or something, the whole thing gets so convoluted so that in the end nobody understands it at all.
I think it is because I feel if I don’t say something straight away I will forget it, so maybe to be able to translate my thoughts into something comprehendable, I need to ignore this feeling or improve my memory! 4 years ago

Thoguhts are wonderful, I have lots of them .. almost too many, at times I am afraid they will come pouring out my ears then onto the floor .. then they will be dirty and I will not want them any longer. Ew, dirty thoughts. Anyway, the problem inserts itself between the thoughts and the speaking. Everything gets confused, then I lose the thought all together. It makes me sad. Most of the time it is not too much of an issue. It gets worse when I get into any form of a debate. I am working on it, taking a deep breath, taking a moment – as long as I need and making certain I have all my thoughts in order before speaking. Only downfall to this, is the fact that some people take offense to this. Oh well. 9 years ago
