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.

KatUpdate for 2014 (Way overdue)

I think I’m on my way. I decided to go back to school, mostly because I felt that it would be a stepping stone to a job that wasn’t something I felt I wanted, but was interesting. I’m enjoying my studies, I found a job that’s relevant to it, I’ve met a lot of great people and I feel that I’ve got endless opportunities waiting for me when I finish.

I honestly am not sure if I’ve actually figured out what I wanted to do with my life, but now I feel that I’m not just wandering about aimlessly. 10 months ago

Amy CoxTake it day by day.

A good friend of mine & Stewart tried to cheer me up yesterday.
They said that if you can’t figure out what you want to do then figure out what you want to do TODAY.

I guess its the same as taking baby steps, a great technique for any goal. I can never figure out what I want specifically, or always want more or something different.

So what do I want from today?
Honestly, Nothing really. I have been at work all week, plus overtime and today for me should be about relaxing before going back tomorrow.
Usually doing nothing would have bugged the hell out of me but I need to learn to take a step out of stressful life.

So I am going to watch a movie, do some knitting and if I decide I want to do something different then I shall, If not then I won’t.

Inspiration and motivation will come to me I am sure… Hopefully one day. 14 months ago

theydontcareTwo main themes of my dreams

Most dreams focus on just 2 themes:

1. The fear/regret of the elapsing/-ed time;
2. The nostalgia of the childhood neighborhood:

Like the dream I just had during the nap: on a late Saturday night bus, with all the blur objects passing by out of the window, I was anxious about the almost finished weekend, regretting about having done nothing/played nothing. The bus stopped at my childhood neighborhood, I wandered on the street and tried really hard to reconcile the true fact that I am in another country and the dream fact that my commuter bus took me to my childhood neighborhood. 17 months ago

theydontcarestill no idea

yep, I guess I need a big picture about how to live my life, not just a shortsighted view of what I need to do for the time being. 18 months ago

ShaTayTayFirefighting!!!! :)

So! Here I am about to go into college and I had no clue what I wanted to do as a profession! So I took things into account.
-I want a job that people are happy with.
-I want to help others to the highest extent.
-I want a lot of physical activity.

So as I mulled things over on the interwebs, I found that firefighting would be an AMAZING job for me!

As for the rest of my life, I will spend it helping others and finding myself spiritually. Hopefully ill join the peace corps :) YAY! 18 months ago
