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.

be a bit happee (read all 112 entries…)

Not sure I ever felt so desperate. What to say… I’m a waste.

Jin Sweet.

You’re such a gem of a person. Sorry you’re feeling low.

If you are like this often, would anti-depressants help? Or can you work out what it would take for you not to feel like this long term? What would need to change in your life? thinking practically, what can you do to help change the way you feel? Little steps add up. No need to run yet, little steps to improving things all add up in the end

Thank you Emu Deer ♥. Honestly I’m not sure anti-depressants would help me at all, I don’t feel like those “down” moments I have are “moods” that need to be dealt with, if anything, the problem is that I’m not in such a state more often, that there’s so little revolt, so much apathy and resignation to a life I’m obviously not happy with. I have high standards but somehow won’t make an effort to live by them. That’s either a self-respect problem, or fear, whatever it is, I believe it’s 100% psychological, not chemical. Or it could just be laziness. I’m very lazy. But I don’t believe I’m moody. Or depressing when you meet me in person. Just when I’m back home I forget that you have to keep living, I just dream my life away and don’t do a thing to change it.

I hear you

And echo your sentiment, only too well.
