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.

Know Better, Do Better

What a perfect person I would be if I actually did what I know is right :P I’m great at giving advice… but when it comes to taking my own advice… lol, that just doesn’t happen. So, with this goal I thee… try to do better. The last few months have been really hard for me. In 6 months I’ve gone from living with a man I really love to moving half way across the country to escape a bad break up. I’m living in a dorm with people 10 years younger than me… taking classes in a subject that I love but am unsure if I want to commit my life to… hearing stories about my ex and his new girlfriend… and so far only made one real friend who I more often than not have an incredibly hard time relating to. Did I mention that I’m not good with change. Needless to say I’ve noticed my depression increasing, my faith growing listless, my feelings of lonliness increasing, and my alcohol consumption growing a wee bit out of control. I feel like I’m hanging on to my life by a thread and I fear that if I don’t focus on the few things I do have, like school, then I… I really don’t know where I’ll be or what I’ll have left. It’s scary to have your footing in life be one big toe on the edge of a cliff… With that said, I think it goes without saying why I need to curb my drinking right now.



I want to:
