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.

Someone loving you

Having someone who knows you very well and is also in love with you and admires you helps a lot. I usually don’t like to say things that involve other people making you feel good, but we are social creatures. Having loving support system is necessary or in the very least helps you be incredibly comfortable with you are faster.

It gets better and better

I’m adding this to my list because I always thought I was comfy in my skin, but as I get older, I am surprised how much more and more I get.

And this comfort idea needs to go beyond self-image and social interactions. I sometimes get discouraged, procrastinate, wish I had so-and-so-successful-person as a friend to help me - I have to internalize that everyone feels screwed up and you have to keep going. This is really hard for me.


I want to:
