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.

Realized that I’m a very boring person, I’m not surprised but that realization, I knew it already, but scary thing is I’m proud of being boring.


I realized that a story isn’t remembered by how the starts, but on how it ends.


Love is beautiful thing, once you get over breakup and heart ache, you realize that you just want her to be happy and that’s the reason you fell in love in first place.


Everything comes with an expiry date, and that includes love, relationships and heartache.

the conflict

She said, “I’m really happy alone”

Even though that’s what I really want … I want her to be happy, but that really hurt me. I’m trying to understand myself. It’s difficult being honest to yourself.


I realized that it’s very very difficult to pretend to be okay and all jolly when you are not.

Things that I wanted in my life

At the age of 10

  • new pair of shoes
  • lot of cricket balls and good cricket bat
  • do well enough in school, so that my parents let me play in the evenings everyday
  • a magnet
  • a dog
  • a big kite
  • And finally that phone from star trek.

Fear ...

I really need to get over my fear.


I’m not that good a person, I used think myself to be. I suck by own standards.

{that feels better}


It’s being a long time, since I have been here. I almost forgot this place.
