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.

become more confident (read all 3 entries…)

It may seem obvious to everyone else, but over the last few days i have just realized that confidence is the key to doing anything in life. Confidence needs to come first before anything else can happen and if confidence is there then anything is possible. I’ve been listening to downloads to improve my self-confidence and it’s working, and as i become more self-confident everything else becomes easier – learning to drive, playing the ukulele, talking to people, tasks at work…..everything! life in itself becomes easier when you have confidence :)


Which downloads?

Hi Ruth, can you tell me what downloads you listen to? I would like to do the same thing.

I’d recommend Marisa Peer – Increased Confidence and Self Esteem available from amazon
also available on Marisa Peers website ( but amazon is cheaper. It’s really good, very effective. She has a few other downloads and books which are good too. Defnitely check her out.


I want to:
