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.

DO YOU BELIEVE IN WHAT YOU ARE DOING? I think to be a leader, you have to be doing something that you truly believe in. It has to align with your values. You have to ask yourself: why am I doing this? Is it really for me, to satisfy my soul, to satisfy my brain, is it to follow my calling, or am I doing it to please others or to fit into their stereo type?

DO NOT BE AFRAID OF OTHERS: You also have to not be afraid of people, be able to face your enemy in the eye, and not let others intimidate you.

HOW TO WIN AND STILL HAVE FUN: Have to overcome adversaries and be willing to create a collaborative environment. Have to not take others criticisms personally. If you can have fun and comoraderie in a competitive environment and still be able to compete with them, I think you will get over a huge stumbling block.

(A lot of times, I take things personal. I think that person doesn’t like me and I stop talking to them. (duh!))

This is the type of person that is the Quarter Back in a football team or a CEO. These people maintain their charisma, sense of fun and play during competition.

(I get too serious during competition and it ruins the fun portion of it for me!) 2 years ago

I don’t think it’s possible to completely be a leader, at least for me. I’m constantly reaching toward being a better leader, more outspoken, less timid, more ready to take initiative and responsibility. The thing is to remember we are all human and that letting yourself some personal space is as important as stepping outside your comfort zone. I’m taking this off my list but it will always be implied. 2 years ago
