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.

KimnxenaAsking for what I want

I have been practicing asking for what I want. I have the right to ask for my needs to be met. The other person has the right to refuse. 23 months ago

KimnxenaBeing assertive

I’m working on saying what I want to say. Doing what I want to do. Labeling my emotions. Leaving the judgments out of my vocabulary. I didn’t want to go to the sandbar. Instead I stayed back and washed my hair in the lake! 2 years ago

KimnxenaGetting better

I am asking for what I want but being flexible enough when I can’t get my needs met. Most of the time, I can get what I want and that DOES NOT make me selfish. Selfish is when I trump someone else or not take their needs into account. 2 years ago

KimnxenaSarcastic? Passive aggressive?

It has come to my attention that I use sarcasm a great deal in my regular day, and that I use a passive aggressive communication style to speak with my husband. Not cool. This goal is to say what I want to say. And to be direct. Not backwards with some funny/witty/cutting remark. 3 years ago
