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.

things are starting to look up

afterr a long episode of depression, self doubt and pretty much feeling like absolute and utterr shitt i’m finally starting to realise things aren’t so bad!

true happiness is just around the cornerr c:


i can’t be happy when i am so close to tears.
it’s just not working.
once something good happens another thing comes along and tears me down.
and i don’t know how to get out of this rutt.
happiness is not achievable.
i don’t get it.


pretty content and happy right now xD

finished all assignments and tests for the term and now it’s holiday time!!!



can’t be happy… too much shitt in the world.


i thought going out partying, and being off my face would make me happier… i don’t know why.. maybe so i could be ‘coolerr’ i guess… but now i just feel like shitt… because my parents didn’t know. and i’m pretty sure the feeling i have now… is not happiness!
this goal is impossible!


how one thing can turn your life upside down..
from being totally happy with not a care in the world.
to being the most depressed sad little f*ck.

but i always have a support system to keep me happy again xD

i don’t think this goal can everr be totally reached.


the main root of my unhappiness is the way i feel about myself.

i just want to find a way to feel happy about everything. just seems like a lost cause at the moment though.

anitadiction has gotten 3 cheers on this goal.


I want to:
