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.

My life is content. Not awesome, just… content. I want it to be awesome, I want to reach out and fufil as much as I possibly can, not just what I’m good at. I’m still a school student, but I’m happy with the oppourtunities my school has given me, the only problem is I’m not grasping them and trying to show myself as a better person in my school life. I want to reach out further and show all of me, just not a quiant, quiet person that just dissapears after school, I want to be remembered for something almost; even recieving a reward will be satisfying for me 4 years ago

new_startI've sure been doing this recently...

and is it ever healing.

I still have moments of feeling bad about it, though.
While I am still there for people too, at the moment the balance is towards me needing support, rather than being a support. And while I know further healing and growth will only continue to mould me someone who can be there even more fully for others in the future, in the meantime it can be a challenge to accept. 7 years ago

new_startThis is...

both about needs, and in love.

Such a fine balance. I think it is important to be concious of which it is, when it occurs.

I think I have mixed them up a lot in the past. And this often resulted in much pain. 7 years ago
