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.

CharlieIt gets easier

I noticed, just blurting out something or doing something in the situation that could only lead to utter humiliation in your mind,

is a LOT easier than not doing anything at all and let the
“what ifs” take over.

It feels like practice. Like baseball. It only gets easier
to play only if you keep doing it.

and yeah. Living powerfully and courageously (whatever it may be for that situation) with the realization of fear and consequences, as scary as it feels sometimes…

it does get easier.

CharlieMy Intention to My Life

My story is that “I try to look good to others”
this is my makeup.

What it has costed me is a censorship on my thoughts, actions,
and most importantly self expression.

I will live courageously to take actions through my fears, doubts, and uncertainties in order to love my life and my beliefs. 6 years ago
