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.

This is my biggest issue. I want things to happen right away. I don’t like to wait for when the “time is right”. I guess as a child I was used to getting things right away and as I got older I figured I was still entitled to certain things. This way of thinking has ruined me and as a result put me in the situation I am currently rotting away in.

After graduating from college I thought life was going to be smooth sailing and things were just going to happen for me. Instead of regrouping when things didn't work and figuring out a plan to succeed in life, I threw myself a pity party for years. All of those years wasted could have been years working towards the bigger picture. I wish I would have known back then how to do things. I didn't have direction or an example of  strong work ethic/patience pays off, I thought I didn't need it because I had a degree. Now I'm still lost and struggling. I do know I need to slow down and think things through. I will continue to work on my patience as well as other areas of my life. 3 months ago

My whole life I have been a very unpatient person. I have realized that when waiting for things to happen in my life that good things only happen when you take your focus away from obsessing over your goals or hopes. When obsessing about things, nothing seems to happen but when you take a step back and focus your time and energy on something else then the original thing seems to work out. Just an observation of mine : ) 6 months ago

girlwitglassesRoad rage

My patience has went out the window as far as controlling my anger on the road. I don’t even know why I get so angry at other drivers. For some reason it just feels good to yell and get my frustrations out.
My patience in general is shot as well. I snap at every little thing and then later realize how I acted was inappropriate, but that’s the thing I don’t realize what I’ve done til after the fact. I just need to take a step back before I react to things. This is gonna be harder than I thought. 10 months ago
