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.

i don't think i can do this anymore..

i’ve had enough…after too many problems i have lost confidence in me- i tired to get it back but i realized the person i am now is who i will always be. Weak.


just when i thought i fixed everything with the girls at school, they’re at it again. JUST when my confidence was boosting up as well. i don’t get it, i don’t do anything to them. They call me the bitch, but they are the ones making comments everytime i pass by and pushing against the lockers. They hate me so much, yet to try so hard to get my attention, and involve me in their life. Thats contradicting yourself if i say…i really thought i was beginning to not fear them, but it’s happening all over again. AGAIN i have to be alert on whats around me…all of a sudden i feel so let down.


after i finally stood up for myself oneday against someone who was picking on me, i became a little more confident. I speak up more often, and feel tougher against people who i shouldn’t really care about. I’m not COMPLETELY confident yet, but im getting there step by step!

i used to be more confident

but i don’t know what happened know. i don’t like public speaking, i get nervous easily, and i doubt myself to much…

sweetnam has gotten 3 cheers on this goal.


I want to:
