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.

stop trying to please everyone

coz I know I can't

it’s so frustrating. Trying to please EVERYONE is so difficult. I’m tired of being so nice, it hurts me now. I always care about how people feel that I don’t consider my feelings anymore.
I’m jealous of people who can express their feelings well. Those people who can tell everyone they are pissed off with someone and get away with it. Those people who hurt other peoples feeling without feeling guilty after. Those people who are happy even if almost everyone hates them.
Why are they able to do that? and why can’t I do that? Why is my conscience so strong that I can’t even make a little mistake without feeling guilty. I’m so weak. I feel no one cares about me. It’s like I can be gone and no one will look for me.
But what I can I do? Accept the fact that I can’t please everyone and start caring about my feelings.


I want to:
