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.

STATUS: A STARTMOOD: Started out quite low, even broke down couple of times when things didn’t work out like the traffic or my laptop had issues or my phone froze (sounds like lil things right now, right !, had me almost crying then…), Gel better as the day progressed

Tasks I accomplished:
1. Completed these extremely important pending Application documents
2. Drank 2 bottles of water (better than none atleast)
3. Attended Doctor’s appointment
4. Exercised – 15 mins
5. Completed some major work related email followup – still some are pending
6. Joined Superbetter
7. Took a good 1/2 hour relaxing break watching my favorite soap
8. Cleaned my Living Room and started cleaning the Kitchen
9. Applied for needed Credit card
10. Called a good friend and spoke to him
11. Emailed a friend a document I was supposed to send a week back
12. Sent a thank-you email to a Friend
13. Played EyeSpy: The Matrix – for improving self-esteem : 5 times

Feels good reporting this…So much was done, Sure, a lot remains, but this is a start… 22 months ago

Amrita15starting today 2/28/2013

I plan on writing daily entries on this goal. I have always been this motivated person working on my goals and sure there would be low days and low points but there were high points too…Lately though, I feel like nothing good is happening in my life – I had a major car accident, My role at work sucks right now, I am single with family pressures to get married – all the while making me realize – great, I’m 28 and haven’t yet found someone ! , I am trying to change jobs and nothing good has turned up from those job applications I spent night on after coming back from work – Basically, an all time low !! LOW…LOW…LOW…LOW..LOW..eveyday, I wake up and ask myself – where is the old me ? Why I can’t I find her and Why can’t I see my life the way I used too – sure I knew things weren’t perfect, but I had hope inside me and I smiled..Nowadays, I feel like that the Hope is dead…I have to get out of this rut- It’s been like this since December – 3 whole months of moping and crying and being lethargic and beating myself up about what could be done on time and still I don’t because I just don’t want to wake up and stay under my covers all life long right now…Well, As I’m Single and by myself with my Family 1000s of miles away – I have decided that I have but myself to get out of this gutter..I start today, I have decided to start today ..I count on your cheers to be motivated and plan on reporting my activities and tasks to improve my self esteem… 22 months ago
