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.

I’m achieving the opposite. I inspire hostility nowadays.

It’s nothing like that. There’s a reason behind their hostility but it’s something I can’t help myself with.

Sorry that you have been feeling the same. It’s not enjoyable being disliked, isn’t it?:)

Envergure le seul but du monde: un poème.


Envy sound to me like something very possible… Sometimes, we think we act correctly and in respect of everyone, but in reality, other perceive our motivation to do something in a way that we did’nt expect. People that we inspire keep silent most of the time… There are some others that feel insecure in presence of us, we don’t always know why, but we are at different step of our life at different times… I really hope that you will be able to realize that people fragility is not your fault and that you will be able to listen to them and understand them without feeling bad, with the distance that you need to really love someone that don’t understand you and keep the distance that he or she need. But maybe that does’nt apply to your situation.

aaeeeiiii Thanks for 7 years!

I’ll think about what you say here. Thanks for the comment.

aaeeeiiii has gotten 2 cheers on this entry.


I want to:
