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.

get the courage to ask someone out

I like him so much… But he’s not allowed to date, and I’m pretty sure that he doesn’t like me the way that I do to him! Please help me! :(

get over him
It took me 2 days

I think I might’ve broken up with him…
I invited him to a dance, we had been dating for 2 days (fist real relationship) and it was kinda awquard. I realized that I didn’t really like him and he didn’t really like me. We just became friends and it seemed ok from then!

ask my crush out (read all 2 entries…)

It’s been a while, and I’ve done some things. Like I was too nervous to ask this guy out. So i asked my friend to ask him out for me. She asked him, but she won’t tell me what he said because she had to promise not to tell me… And she emailed me a couple days later and said “WELL COLIN CAN’T DATE ANYWAY!” I’m kinda thinking that he doesn’t like me more than a friend cuz we’ve been friends since the beginning of the year and we just talk about random things and make each other laugh! But I really wanna know what he said…

See all entries ...


I want to:
