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.

give up sex
The pointlessness of sex

Before sex I think sex is good. During sex I think sex is good. After sex I realise sex is pointless. I realise I am no better off now it has happened (infact sometimes worse off) and i realise how every other instant of my life is influenced by my desire for sex. It is an activity i engage in only because I feel like I have nothign better to do. This could be related to another one of my ‘to do’s’ and that is to find meaning. How do I give up sex? Sex make me feel weak minded and feeble so maybe its a matter of becoming mentally stonger?



find meaning (read all 2 entries…)
The meaning of the now

What is the meaning of the present? How does one move on to the next moment in time with motivation and energy? The distant future can look so good but the immidiate future so pointless. I have found that I am simply waiting for the distant future to arrive. This seems absurd though since eventually the distant future will turn in to the immidiate future. I need motivation to achieve success in everything i do no matter how pointless it seems to be other wise my life will turn in to one giant downward spiral. I almost feel like I am to smart for my own good, instead of getting on with a simple task I instead think what is the point. If i do do it will life be any better? is there an end outcome to this task that will be of benifit? etc This might be because for me the distant future is already in place and when it arrives life will be awesome. Nothing I do till then will change what happens then. It makes it bloody hard to finish any school work. help
