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 that as important as hanging on is, so is knowing when to let go (read all 2 entries…)

I have been hanging on for a while now, however I was talking to my ex today and I realised that its probably time to let go, I’ve been feeling really down most of the day, I just wish that she could see things the way I see them. I know that I have a life to live too though. I just wanted to live that life with her.
I think the next few weeks are going to be really tough, I have a hard time letting people go. I can’t understand how people can just walk away from their friends or relationships without a second thought. I love people, I love being around them and finding out about them. It hurts me so much knowing that I have had feelings for someone but I’m never going to see them again.


let go let god!

I will be praying for you everything that happens is for his purpose we just need to accept it and trust that he has something better for us at a later time.

Thank you, that’s very kind. I agree with you, somethings are difficult to take but you’ve just got to have faith.

One day

U will look back on this experience and you will realize how much you have learned. Trust me! I have been through this many times. It doesn’t get any easier, but you learn to cope in your own way. Good luck to you!

matador has gotten 4 cheers on this entry.


I want to:
