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.

This is amazing how ...

... adding up this goal to my list made me talk to people.
Telling them the truth/what I felt/something I just needed to let out …

Kind of ironic :)

Dear G

Tu es chiant, désinvolte et tu critiques tout. Tu as cette tête quand tu dis que tu es “mooort”et tu ne viens jamais en cours. Et tu dors tout le temps. Et tu n’aimes pas les chats.
Mais je me souviens du jour où on s’est précipités dans le bus. On riait comme des gamins, comme des amis de toujours. Et ça faisait 2 heures que j’avais fait ta connaissance.
T’étais là, avec tes RayBan, et je me suis dit que ça devait être génial de t’avoir comme ami.
Je n’avais pas tort. Mais j’aurai du me méfier: perdre quelqu’un d’aussi génial vaut-il le coup de le rencontrer?
Ah oui, et tu es incapable de manger des spaghetti correctement. Et tu es la seule personne que je connaisse qui regarde plus de séries que moi.
Tu acquiesces mais ne réponds jamais vraiment. A se demander si tu écoutes. Alors que oui; parce que tu savais quels jours j’allais voir Jason.
Je crois que tu es quelqu’un de bien. Mais pas l’ami idéal. D’ailleurs, qui l’est?
Et je pourrai ne pas te reconnaître quand tes amis parlent de toi. Makes you sound like a lesser guy.
Tu es … flemmard. Sérieusement.

Dear J

I am alone without you. Literally alone. Alone: with no-one. No-one.
Please, just call. Put me out of my misery. End this. Make it start.
They say each second could be the start of a new life; so please, make this second special. Make it the beginning of something new.

Dear Jl

I can not believe you did not call before leaving. I never thought you’d just leave without making sure I was going to be good. Because that’s what I do for you: I make sure you are alright; even when I can’t possibly change the way things are.


I think I need to do this. To let it out.

Alizee has gotten 6 cheers on this goal.


I want to:
