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.

control my jealousy (read all 2 entries…)
this is destroying me cont.....

The only real thing im worried about is what would she have done if my mate hadnt been there? I cant seem to drop it! Im never like this and to be honest im scared to find out whats going to come out in the wash. Im maybe jst angry with myself for having invested so much emotion in a person, and now in the flick of a switch ive gone from what ive always felt, stable and strong, to trying my best not to feel bitter and weak. WTF is that all about?

This is destroying me!

Im a guy, im 26, im in a relationship with a great girl who says she loves me, its just that lately her and her girl friend have been going to an exercise class and suddenly she has started talking about some guy called chris? For some reason this guy has both her and her friends ph numbers and texts them. She came in the other night after being out and mentioned his name a good 4 or 5 times and she seemed excited that she had met him out! I dont understand whats going on and if ive even any right in writing this? I asked her about it the next day when she was not tipsy anymore and she said i had nothing to worry about and that he sends the same messages to her as he does to her friend. But i was so worried about it still, because based on experience there was something too familiar about it, and in a moment of craziness i invaded her privacy and checked her ph inbox when she was showering which ive never done before and i feel terrible about, i was just panicked. He was asking if she was going to be out that night, she replied yeah she’s going to the night club and she will prob see him there, then at the end there was a message from him saying to come and get him when she’s leaving and they can share a taxi home! She didnt do that thankfully, one of my mates who’s a real gent walked her home to the front door. But theres always that burning thought in the back of my head eating at me thats saying “who is this guy? why do you keep mentioning his name and why is he asking to get a taxi home with you at the end of the night?” What should i make of that? I never ever ever thought that something like this would be an issue between us? We have always been so tight! The thought of it all makes my blood boil and i hate it! Knowing my luck if i make a big deal out of it i’ll prob end up pushing them both together, power of suggestion and all that! And im afraid if i keep bottling it up i might knock his head off if i meet him, like an angry pathetic neanderthal.


I want to:
