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.

I was writing like crazy but it was worth it. I wrote things I was ashamed of for many years. Now I have to read it and draw a conclusion.


2 days left! 15 pages to go!!! :O :O :O

45 pages to go!

45 pages, 14 days!


My fleeting thoughts just don’t seem to flow when I have so little time to think and I spend the rest of it studying…


I’m on page 77, so I have 69 left. I have to hurry up! Having only 29 days left I’ll have to write about 2 and a half pages daily to do it on time.


I’m on page 30 and I’ve noticed I have 116 more lol :D Don’t believe the imprinted notes. It said it has 80 pages and it has (accidentally?) 146. lol
that will be hard..

I'm on page 22

Still about 60 to go… And 34 days to go.. Two pages a day will easily make it. Recently I’ve been at one and a half of a page. :)


I’m on page 4 and I have 76 more to fill up. I’ll write again when I’m on page 20. :)
I’m writing so stupid things sometimes, that it almost hurts. But I’m writing everything that comes up to my mind. Half of my philosophy, half of my senseless thoughts about a shop cashier’s trousers.
Hmm, so many “I’m”s here. :D I’m getting a bit confused… Or I’m just everyday more stupid. ;)

A yellow ugly notebook

Yesterday at night I took a lonely notebook lying somewhere on one of my shelves and wrote the first paragraph in it.
Today I added two other paragraphs.
I’m doing this to create a story out of it later. Now there are only thoughts about life and the world, so it’s rather philosophy than fiction. But why shouldn’t I add some philosophy between fiction? Let the thoughts flow, I’ll jot down anything that comes up.
