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.

Stop caring what other people think of me


Improving Myself has written 2 entries about this goal


I haven’t completely done this, but I’m much better than I was last year. I still care about some people’s negative thoughts of me (these people are in my family). My oldest brother thinks I’m lazy because I don’t work (even though I’m a full time college student) and his ex-girlfriend is always looking me up and down like she’s judging me and it’s annoying.

I’m working on not caring about their opinions because they’re not doing well in life AT ALL; but I just have to work on my self-esteem.


Caring about waht others think has stopped me from voicing my opinion. It has also stopped me from experimenting with my look because I was afriad of the reaction. I don’t want to be that scared little girl any more I want to have the courage to think, the hell with negative opinions of me and just do what I LIKE before I become too old to do it.


I want to:
