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.

Lot of time has gone by

and still Im into the same doomed situation. I guess for experiencing some relevant change in my life it will take 8 more years. So I would say I hope to have an awesomely different life by this time in 8 years. Hopefully this site will still be around…
and I can come and laugh about how silly I was in 2010.


I made this goal 6 months ago, i still have another 6 more. For now my life hasnt change that much. Of course 1 month ago I was feeling almost like if i was someone else. But now I came back to reality.
So what seemed to a good improvement has come down to the same old crap.
I wish that by the end of this 6 months things arent like this anymore I hardly can stand it.

Today Sunday 15th

I live with my parents, Im unemployed, go to the gym 6 times per week.
By this time next year I should be married, in college and in great shape.
