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.

Stop caring what other people think of me

people that care

that much about everyone else’s opinion need help because why bother to please everyone else if your not happy. do what makes you happy even if no one else wants to or only a few. life is too short to care about assholes or people that will always put you down no matter what.



life isn't

jr high or high school despite what some people think . why care about someone opinion who you’ll never see again. the people who talk trash about others tend to have low self esteem , not many friends and usually can’t do for themselves. someday all the people that think they’re better than everyone else will be in trouble when they realize no one cares anymore what they think, everyone has moved on and isn’t still a baby or a in elementary school.



what's the point

of caring what everyone thinks? are they going to help you? are they going to further your career, help you win millions or something like that. you obliviously have to care about some people. don’t get hung up on this because certain people will never think much of other people no matter how much you try and those people aren’t worth it to begin with. i’m trying to get all of them out of my life.



sometimes

you have to care when it’s your job and your boss is evaluating you or something like that, but there’s no reason to care what someone just walking by you thinks about . who cares what the person that you order food from thinks of you.

once you realize you don't have to care you can be your own person and alot happier.


other people

sometimes just wanna build themselves by making other people feel small. they’re not worth it. even back high school i really didn’t care what everyone else thought of me. i try to be my own person regardless of what others think. telling me what someone else thinks of me is pointless, because what am i going to do beat up the person that doesn’t think much of me. i just don’t care because like i have said before they aren’t worth it. if they want to get to know me , thats fine, but if there just going to form an opinion based on something that was said about me from someone who barely knows me is stupid . thats why it’s not worth it to care about rumers. if you want to know the truth about me ask me , don’t just listen to everyone bullshit.



expectations

the only 1’s i have to live up to are my own.



why bother

there’s no point in caring what other think about you when they won’t actually take the time to get to know you . as long as your happy with yourself there’s no reason to care what complete strangers think.



i really don't care

my so called “friend” tell me what his friends think of me like i’m suppose to care, they don’t know me really and if the shithead was m real friend why the hell wud he tell me 2 fucking losers don’t think of me.
i don’t hang out with him anymore. he’s a backstabbing piece of shit who was probably talking behind my back in the 1st place. he’s never going to grow up and he’ll probably never have any real friends because he doesn’t care.

not friends


other people

i care what my true friends think of me and my family . most others there’s no reason to care . they don’t know they won’t take the time to know me . they just listen to rumors
