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.

shanehayesdesignerThe struggle with societal pressure...

I’ve been smoking since I was 17—mostly because most of my friends were smokers and I felt like I fit in better. For awhile, smoking fit my image of being a young, rebellious rock musician; where I live, all musicians smoke and drink (a lot).

I’ll be 33 in a couple of months, and while I’ve weaned my habit down to just a couple of cigarettes a day, I really want to make that next step and quit completely. Smoking just a couple of cigarettes a day makes me lethargic, irritates my stomach and makes my girlfriend really grumpy :o(

The problem with smoking is that it’s a social habit for me. I smoke because my friends do it—it’s become associated with my social group, mostly artists, musicians, actors and other creative types. That makes it extraordinarily difficult to put them down permanently, even though I know in the back of my mind it’s terrible for my health.

Please note, my friends aren’t encouraging it—every time I try to quit, they are very supportive…I just keep putting myself in situations where I’m susceptible to temptation.

Any suggestions? 3 years ago
