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.

I’ve always liked giving advice. I suppose it started when I realized the people I really looked up to could almost always bestow some form of wisdom on me when I wanted, needed, or deserved it. The respect I had for my father was more than I’ve felt towards any one person thus far in my life. This was in no small part due to his being a human dictionary of sorts; there was never a question that he failed to answer for me and more often than not, the answers were thought provoking or had some form of moral included.

I want to be someone that others can look up to and ask questions, knowing I’ll have an answer. I wouldn’t say it’s for any selfish reason other than I like the feeling of someone telling me the advice I’d given them was beneficial somehow. I’d say this is a goal of mine because I want to give back in the way that my dad gave me insight into my life and the way the world works.

I honestly have no idea how to make this work other than practice and being able to keep a level head. The important part is being able to read people and understand what they need to hear. That was the most impressive part about my dad’s advice I think. He could tell me what I needed to hear, not what I wanted to hear, which is a skill I personally don’t see enough of. So the resources I’d need to accomplish this are probably just people to talk to and a willingness to help. 19 months ago
