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 ultimate goal

this is my biggest goal yet, a life-time goal. i’ve been on 60mg of paxil a day for more years than i care to admit even to myself… and i know, i just know in my heart of hearts that i no longer need it – i know, in fact, that i never did need it. i’ve learned so many positive coping techniques, and have opened myself to alternative explorations… homeopathic and naturopathic medicines help me keep balanced; yoga and meditation help me keep a spiritual perspective on everything; breathing exercises, seeing my counselor regularly, embracing every one of my little insanities… i am becoming so good at self-care! it is so sad that i am so addicted to this substance, that i’ve tried and failed so many times in weening myself off of it – even with the help of an entire team of naturopathic doctors, acupunturists, counselors, massage therapists, lovers. i get so incredibly physically ill. i gap out, faint. it’s disgusting. i don’t know how, or when, but someday… someday, i’m going to get off of this poison drug. and it will feel so fucking good to have a clean body, free of mind-altering substances, to know and feel what it is to just be myself, without bizarre paxil side effects.


I want to:
