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.

christinet in Holmes Beach is doing 28 things including…

Allow myself to only be treated well by the people I choose to have friendships and relationships with. If they do not, I need to find the courage to move on without them.

christinet has written 3 entries about this goal


is an ongoing theme in my life at this time. Its ironic that when I first adopted this goal I was with a man and then suddenly I found myself in love with a WOMAN!!!(an equally dysfunctional more than slightly criminal and severely substance abuse addicted woman,, but a woman nonetheless)
and now I’ve got to find the courage to leave THIS BITCH alone…. I recently read a poster that said. “the only consistent feature in all your dissatisfying relationships is you” Scary, but true.

I DID IT!!!!!

I left him…maybe out of the frying pan into the fire…but like we say in Spanish el que no arriesga no cruza el mar…(if you don’t take a risk you’ll never know what you’re missing (literally cross the ocean)

Sometimes something so simple like this will be an eye opener.....

This left me with my mouth open….I have let the father of my son treat me like I was less than him for so long….It hurts alot but at the same time sometimes I don’t think I deserve better. Also my love for him has allowed me to be blinded by the reality of our relationship which is that I ALLOW him to treat me like this….I LET him back into my life cuz I think finally he’s gonna change, he really loves me, he can’t help it!!!
BULLSHIT!!!! I need strength….I am weak….I need him out of my life for good..whoever came up with this goal THANK YOU

christinet has gotten 20 cheers on this goal.


I want to:
