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.

NekoStepping out of comfort zone

I have some sort of phone phobia. Talking on the phone, especially calling to strangers horrifies me. It makes a life bit hard cos rather than call I send emails (I have to wait for an answer) or go to see in person (takes time). It’s silly too how I feel so anxious about something like that.

For my job, I got task to call several people. I pushed it forward to future cos I didn’t want to do it. It made me really nervous and anxious when I thought that I had to do it. But today I had to made the calls. And you know what! It wasn’t that bad. It felt good that I managed to do something that I hate so much.

I know this might feel silly for some most of you, but for me it was a big deal. Me on the work time is different than the me on the free time, and the work me can do things that I normally don’t dare so much. I wish I would have the same kind of courage on free time as well.

Yeah, I guess I can have the courage. I can be brave. And I will be brave. I want to step out from my comfort zone more often. Even though the thoughts of doing something that I don’t like makes me feel ill, the feeling I get afterwards is great! 2 years ago

I don’t think I am the most horrible, unfit, ugly, etc. However, I think I can make changes to better myself. This week I worked on Monday from 9am-8pm, Tuesday from 7am-10pm, Wednesday from 8am-12pm, Thursday from 7am-10pm, Friday from 9am-3pm. 63 hours. I also worked on the week-end. I am going to burn out if I continue. I don’t even get paid the overtime for any of those extra hours. I want to be:
-more fit
-a better friend
-prettier (spend time doing my hair, etc.)
- spend time making myself healthier (eye appointments)
- clean the house
- visiting family

All of the above is important and I feel if I spend time making this important I will upgrade myself. :) 3 years ago
