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.

My overactive imagination again…I’m starting to believe that if I don’t imagine how people are and I just limit myself to giving people credit for what they do and how they are instead of waht imagine they do or are I won’t have this problem again.
Only time will tell I guess


With every new day I believe I’m getting closer to this goal

First step

I was writing an entry for and other goal and this came out “When I meet someone that impresses me I tend to put them on a pedestal; I start believing that they are better than I am and that I’m lucky to be with them. At this point, I believe that no one is perfect but I used to think differently. We are all different; we all have good things and bad things. From now on I will assume that if someone is spending time with me is for the same reason I’m spending time with them: because I enjoy it. I’m not great, I don’t need to be. I’m just me and guess what…I am fond of me.” The first step to recovery is recognizing the problem. I think I’ve just did. If in a year from now I don’t make this same mistake again I’ll consider this one done.

Romina has gotten 4 cheers on this goal.


I want to:
