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.

Damn it, again! aka new start

Here we go again, I haven’t been paying any attention to this site for a year.
A year and a week, to be exact.
Screwing around, not doing what I should and would love to do.

I really want to make a difference this time.
I want to be organized, motivated and keep promises.
I want to stop wasting my time, I want to become who I want to be.
I really do.

New start in 3…2…1…
First step, review my old goals, delete those I don’t want to keep and add new ones.


Tonight’s goal: learn the linguistics for the test until midnight.
Then revise buddhism and take a look at the USA studies.

Goals for tonight:

1) Go downstairs and make myself a cup of coffee (cause my blood pressure is going down and I’m starting to feel a little dizzy and my head is killing me)
2) Grab something to eat
3) Change into something comfortable and DON’T FORGET TO PUT MY CLOTHES IN THE WARDROBE (FOLDED NOT MUSSY!!!!!!!!!!!!!) AND NOT ON A CHAIR AS I ALWAYS DO (and I’m too lazy to clean up the mess next morning)
4) sit down and start studying vocabulary for English exam WITHOUT CHECKING FACEBOOK EVERY 10 MINUTES!!!!!!!!
5) get up before 10 o’clock tomorrow!

Here we go.. wish me luck and tons of patience.


1) Print some tests
2) Clean up the mess around
3) Pack up, have a bath and prepare to leave for tomorrow’s university entering exam! (SO DAMN NERVOUS!!)
4) Call a friend of mine to find out what the hell’s wrong with him (otherwise I won’t have a place to stay overnight)
5) Finish studying English for school leaving exams by Sunday and then start with history
