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.

Alisa BunnyBua I will "Live Happily even I'm Single"!

Live Happily even I'm Single
I will "Live Happily even I'm Single"

Many people (included me) used to think that only “having boyfriend/girlfriend” or “getting married” can bring them life-long happiness and I used to wait…. for a long time and loved then broke up and many times like this. I saw many couples divorced, some of them doesn’t divorce but live like they have no soul anymore. I saw many couples broke up, many people fell…

Then, I started thinking “why won’t I live happily by myself?” If I don’t have my soulmate, or don’t have anyone that I love and he loves me back, then it doesn’t mean that I cannot be happy… There’re many ways and many things to think of, many things to do that can make me feel happy without having a boyfriend!

Girls or Guys, if you don’t find real love or love that you can be happy with, let’s be happy with yourself, and that will be your life-long happiness!


I agree with you. Personally, I live to be happy with myself. And I don’t want to rely on other people for my own happiness. But maybe I just enjoy being lonely. Or I might be afraid to depend on others…

Either way, most of our lives are lived with ourselves. So it’s good when we enjoy this. Be happy! :)
