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.

When I’m comfortable with people I am really bossy.

I have a domineering personality and I love very much to be in control – but I have no fear in giving out control/sharing control/someone else being in charge/control.

I love to talk, even though I get a sore throat nine times out ten when I talk loads.

My biggest stumbling block in my personality is that I love to tell people what I think they should be doing in their life. I love to give advice to those I care about.

I’m such a bossy big sister to my younger brother (younger by 14 months but it feels like 5 years.) I’ve always felt older than my age and I’ve always been a listener and a problem solver. I’m good at solving my own issues, too, so it’s not as if I’m helping people overcome their issues to avoid my own.

The reason I need to cut down on this behaviour is because I don’t want my son to feel smothered or pressured by me. I want him to make his own choices and be governed by his own set of rules and standards. 3 years ago
