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.

This is mostly in regards to body image. I don’t really believe in having a goal “weight” but more of a goal “shape”. 9 months ago

superdirka"Things I like about me" list growing...

I felt off this morning before I started going through my “Things I like about me” list, about 80% of the way through it I started feeling like I agreed with the stuff on the list. I got a chance to add a couple more things to the end of it. How awesome is it to think about going through a list of over 100 things that are neat about yourself every day. By the end of a list like that it’ll be hard to feel anything but positive.

The cool thing is that there’s enough on that list that allows me to be imperfect, awkward, critical and emotionally honest. 2 years ago

superdirkaMore specific

I’d like to wake up in the morning and just naturally feel good about the person I’m living as.

Right now I’m using my list of “Things I like about me” as sort of daily affirmations. I’ve got to say after reading through the list (that’s getting pretty darn long) I do feel more gooder. And we all know, gooder is gooder than good. 2 years ago

Specific – not exactly
Measurable – not really
Active – no, not active
Reasonable – yes, it’s reasonable to feel good about myself
Timely – no, there’s no mention of any time period here 2 years ago
