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.

I’m ticking this goal off as done.. cz I;ve reached a satisfactory level..

I’m glad I did this.


I’m not overly nice.. nor am I being rude to anyone..

This works for me..



I think even though I’ve calmed down a massive amt from before.. I cud still tone down.. esp with my mom.

Sumtime’s I’m not so nice to her cz I get irritated.

Have to work on that… :-(


I am getting bolder.. but sumtimes I am not so nice.. and sumtimes.. ppl dun really even listen til u r stern with them..

That sucks.

Being assertive is not as easy as it sounds..


I was getting irritated by a few ppl.. but I maintained my smile and listened to them anyways..

That bought them happiness..

Isn’t it all worth it now?

Yes, it sure is!


I think as I become more patient with people.. I become more nicer towards them!

Way to go!


Today morning I feel bsolutely great!

Maybe the fact that I had a very fulfilling evening yesterday cud have sumthing to do with..

I am seeing a positive change in me…

I am becoming nicer as I try to understand ppl more..

I greeted the guard at the gate today.. he was really taken aback.. but now I do it every day… and I can see the smile on his face.. I feel great to..

It’s abt acknowleding and accepting..

I will really achoeve this when every single person I pass will smile at me.. and I’ll smile right back..

It’s so simple.. yet ppl dun see it that way.

Baby steps. Though I really wanna leap!


I am nicer to ppl when I am happy.. so.. I will be more happier.. so that I can be nice to ppl!


I am really sweet.. most ppl wud say on our first meeting, but I can be very mean sumtimes..

No matter what my mood is.. I shud be able to control it.. cz it’s not anyone else’s problem.. it’s mine..
