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.

My heart is aching now

It’s been officially a week since I last heard from him..the thing that surprises me that he never told me it’s over..or that he’s breaking up with me or something..Even the last call although he was cold..he did not even hint that it’s over..He simply disappeared..Wow..I can’t believe it..What i know is there’s no way in hell i’ll be contacting him..although my heart sometimes tells me to do so..I want to do the right thing once in my life and put it all behind me..although God know i miss him so bad and wish I can hear his voice..but then i say what’s the point..if he can just walk away..without saying a word..I want to handle the situation with grace..even if he chose to go away..I only wish if i know why…I only wish to know if he really loved me as he always said..


my heart goes out to you

speaking from experience on this. you maynot be able to just put him out of your mind in a week or two or even a few months. I’ve been working on this myself for the past year.

if you link to some of my past posts you will find a scientific explanation to why you love him and miss him.
its biological, cultural and genitic.

good luck and know your not alone in this struggle.


I want to:
