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.

fall out of love

It took someone else to show me how amazing love can actually be when it’s real.

is it possible?

I think I have done this.. but then again is it really ever possible? I definitely have my doubts.

i fell in love now i want OUT

i fell in love… it wasn’t my fault i swear. there was no logical reason for it to happen. all of a sudden i was obsessed. i understood all the songs and the movies. i could converse on a different level… yes i even looked a life differently. i can say falling in love changed my life. but now with the circumstances i am left with… the fact that i have no chance with this love… i want, no NEED to fall out of love. i think i began working on this before i needed to. because i knew that it wouldn’t work out. i knew that i would have to fall out of love eventually and now that it is certain yes this is something i need to do. i recommended falling in love but i can’t back up that recommendation. i think if you fall in love and the other person loves you… then good luck! thats great and believe me i am truly happy for you! but if you are like me… i apply the TGTBT principle to my life anymore. TOO GOOD TO BE TRUE. cause if it is good, to a certain point, for me it will fall through or hurt me in some way. you may think it’s sad that i have to look at life that way… but when i start seeing a therapist i’ll let you know if i make any progress…..


I want to:
