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.

Going backwards

Yesterday I saw pictures of him and his new girlfriend… he was wearing the tie I bought him for my senior prom that he didn’t even want when I got it and The Door’s “Hello I Love You” T-shirt I bought him in NYC that went along with the note I wrote him to tell him I loved him the first time. I know they are just clothes but it hurt, and I let him get the best of me because there is nothing else that I do well.


After two years he dumped me on Christmas Eve because he just didn’t love me anymore. Three months later and he has already replaced me with two different girls. Every time I think about these things and realize how little I meant to him I just break into tears.


I want to:
