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.

stop masturbating (read all 103 entries…)

I decided to read a book about time management in hope that it will heal me from my addictions. I need to stay strong and smile and enjoy the journey.

All I can say is that we must keep fighting. It does not matter if you masturbate or watch porn, the only thing which does matter is how hard we try. I believe that one day when we pass on, God will not give a
#$%@ about if we masturbated or did whatever else, he will just look at our effort.
How could it work any other way?

I am disgusted by myself, I cannot believe I allowed myself to stumble onto a sick porn site. I did not spend more than 20 seconds on it but the fact that I spent 20 seconds on it disgusts me. The site basically consisted of a movie of a guy torturing a women for sexual and sadistic enjoyment. It is hard to believe that there are sick people out there who spend their time watching stuff like that. What has our world come to? I just wonder how those people treat their wives and children…

Luckily my porn session ended after that exposer. I pray to God that my porn usage will never escalate to something like that.

I have read previously that the average porn-”star” is also treated like dirt. Maybe if I research the kind of stuff that they go through I will be influenced to stop supporting this evil.
