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.

Action Plan

For when I get W7:

- Identify three units. Play only with these three.
- Write down a starter build with exact timings. Review Huk videos for inspiration.
- Must attack every 5 minutes from the 10 minute mark.

Goddamn it.

So apparently my anxiety is making me freak out over playing this game vs. another person.


Account Upgraded!

Merry Christmas to me, and I finally have a full copy of SC2. I can now rest assured that even if I am forever bronze, I will at least be able to access the wonder that will be Blizzard DOTA.

I’m gonna do my placement matches sometime in the next few days, when I can set aside some hours.


Well, I finally bought SC2 the other day. I guess that’s a good starting point.

I know it’s weird that I’ve had this goal for so long without actually owning a copy of the game. It’s very simple as to why: I love it as an esport. As a spectator sport. It’s incredible.

My journey finally begins!
