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 did something I feel really bad about. My friend complained about another friend of ours and I went and yelled at him. Now, I am seen as being nosy, and I feel terrible about it. I crossed the line, and I feel really shitty now. I thought it was better to tell him what bothers other people about him rather than have people talk about him behind his back. This line between doing the right thing and not crossing my line gets really gray. :-/


I always try to be good to everyone, and not let my first impressions prevent me from getting to know them better and better. Everyone can be annoying at some point, so I never let their annoyance get in the way. But because I tend to hang out with anyone, no matter how strange they look or how silly they may sound, one of my friends keeps saying i “attract annoying people” and she can’t understand why i bother to talk to these people. and this friend of mine thinks she’s super nice and whatever, but she judges people in one meeting. it makes me really sad that she thinks that because if i went with my first impression of her, i wouldn’t have bothered having a second conversation with her. should i tell her that next time?
