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.

always be aware of and worship my different style of thinking and creativity and use it in most awkward situations and ways (read all 8 entries…)
i just realized I am just the same with the amazin emplyee def and this makes me so sad

soo sooo sad.. cause i feel i am underused, undervalued, driven aside . no one wants it in the place i work.. i think. if someone told me about themselves that i would think probably you are doing sth wrong.. i can not figure out what i am doing wrong.. i do not KNOW.. i have no credibility and am underrated even if i proved several time i am logical, suggest correct alternatives. i feel like all i receive is rejection. may be it is being a woman, a bit young and not complyin all the time. i funckin dunnooooo..

i just want to whine. for 5 minutes

the goal is soo ironic to me right now.. i do not know hpw i ended up doing one of the most conradictive action i can take. i really DO NOT KNOW. i do actually, ihad reasons.. i came to a small city that does not whispred to much to me.. end i feel so boring right now. out of ideas.. out of energy.. when i did not knew and when people said theyfeel kind of trapped here i said no one is. was eating away my charge of everything_new_yayy i guess.. people seem to be even sad at work. silent. sometimes not so rational./. and i started to feel weird sometimes. i just started to stare after work.. balnk blank face.. and i do not know.. i put my body to a bus chair and feel that there is no signal of excitement or will to move in me. i stagger silently in the city center etc.. it is complicated.. at work just to prove myself, becaus ei am younger, i dress (even if i triedto wear only grey and blue nd balck) not so ultra formal, because i am the other sex, and because i donotmay be speak english like it is my mother tongue and because it seems like bigboys hanging around together, i tried to get responsibilities and show that i am more than what they expected etc. i kind of got fixated on this and started to not feel good at work.. then i do not know may be it is not that but i might have given my mentl energy to that ..or may be.. i do not want to admit this but it moved me it might be that .. I feel alone a bit.. i do nto talk at work, other than small talk or business talk or uninteresting daily talk. i do not have friends here. i generally do not like socializing with people i do not know.. The ” so tell me about yourself” part .. it i snot that i do not or not interested in people.. and i am insistingthat i am fine alone.. but i need some brain moving inspiring, exciting, sarcastic, silly absurdly creative talk.. i think i need that the most.. and i am in a cute cute small town where everthing seems contemporary organized and domestic. i do not know if this what i mean.. i need to act quick i think. may be i am panicking and eveything is ok that i need to try a bit harder here.. i just need to come to myself.. cause i do not think a step further of my staggering lifellessy self can do anything about the situtaion.. heheh now i scared myself..

be 60 kg (read all 6 entries…)

i am so bad on this goal. i did the danish and lost 5 kilos in 7 das .. probably motly wter anyway.. generally this loosing stuff was making mefell on tarack and motivated and was keepig me on the trackafter.. but now i think there is a dpeer issue that i did notmind and got maniac with sugar stuff after. i am kind of in a phase i donotgive a sh*it of how i look. my face skin clothes ..blahh .. i relocated to a nwe conuntry .. and to a much smaller city.. i am not motivated to look good. or even to be out and about.. this is a problem right.. and i do not know.. i am loosing my motivation to theoutside world and therefore my inner world.. arghh wahts that. and why i am ranting here.. it seems to be that i will hit a hard getting 30 birthday soon.. come on girl.. this is not you.. you have to be intrested, inspried, excited and look forward for things.. otherwise we both know it doesnotwork for you ;)

spend less on things that i do not get any benefit - other than the relief of wasting money (read all 4 entries…)
i relocated

and all this i am not able to carry stuff so no need to buy mentality has vanished, it is still a fact but i can not even think so i end up buying compulsively stuff. and becasue i ened excitement i started to do this a lot.. i knew it.. i told my bf to tell me if it happens.. he started reminding me that i am overbuying but i am out of track a bit.. this is a small city i live in and i can not create excitement .. soo i end up doing the easiest thing paying money and getting stuff and being occoupied to give a quick fix.. i bought 4 shoes and 3 sunglasses in two weeks,... now you see the pciture. i just feel dirty after.. this is totally not right.. i wanted to own as less as possible.. 7 months agoo only

take note of my uncategorized analysis even if they are not long lived
this is to

take note of my revelations my not so true conclusions, sometimes life mottos.. because you do not know when you bump them .. you can only b e aware if they stick for years.. may be thats good becaus eonly the worthy ones will survive even without taking note of them .. i do not know if i am missing some worthy ones because iforget.. and i do not kwno if i keep track of they might actually be harmfull because i keep imposing themn in my brain by reading,.. because sometimes they are not true and can be a mistaken labeling of myself. blahh .. lets see i wrote the goal title anyway.

Think less and do more
i forgot i added this

to my list years ago! actually i did not check the date but since i have been writing for ages so i can say that with a bit of exaggeration.

still this is on my agenda.. i am readig a book called Just start which is totally ill written and basic but can get me in the mood becaus ethat is what i want to hear again an again. (yeahhh the book says the same thinh again again!!)

well i am digressing from the topic and wirting irrelevant sutff..that was the actual reason i starewtd to write this.. i do not think.. but i can not do more.. my brain is just shoveling from place to place. and does the sutff that is more easier. even if it si repetitive.. i am just doing.. on the run.. that doesnot get me anywhere.. i am not even progressing , it is like chasing yur tail. and it seems my brain is tooo bursting and mumbling that i can not think even if i want to .. am i making up.. is it that i am just tired may be.. compulsive is the word that i want to express… blahh i need to meditate or sth to slow my brain so it actually gets on track

soooo distant

right now.. i have changed my job.. and i relaise that I could express and have fun and do funny stuff at my previous job.. and we were doing big projects not that my responsibilites increased. in this place i have less reponsbility. i am one the young ones and still i have to be really serious.. we dress formal.. everyone is silent.. and i am not able to expressmyself cause this is a job in a different country so i do not use my main language which limits the way i express myself..lets seee.. i do not laugh here much.. back in the old job i was complaining i didi not had a good laugh often but it seems that we were having fun.. ahahah ironic. in the old one we did not needed to dress formal.. it was pretty normal day stuff. and one day a group of us agreed to come with ultra formal clothes. people wre reacting funny. especially when we go down to have a cig it was scene :D:D
I think i will start doing crazy shit just because i have a lack of fun.. putting myseriously funny stuff around.. but amazinlgy there is cameras in the work place.. that is not so coool.. where am i .. someone told me that i need to go the “The city” because i look sooo out of the place in this office.

i went overboard

with what i eat and sugary and unhelaty stuff and plummetered to an unhelathy 68-69. Now to get rid of sugar addiction I am going cold turkey with sugar for 14 days.. I follow danish hospital diet that will get ridd of my usage habits for
- alcohol
- sugary things
- big portions

Also This is really low calories but I will try to go to gym as well.. after 14 days I will not go back to using sugary stuff just fruits.. few alcohol and more gym. i got a lot of gym clothes and simig stuff.. so it will motivate me i guesss… and i subscribed to an amazing gym

Establish regular, scheduled times to think more long term, creatively, or strategically
found this on a list of the "magic of doings things one at a time"

I liked it.. Altough it is not related to doing things one at a time.. may be iot is.. because I~ do sporadicl;y try to do that or totally not do that .. soo lets find a way to do this.. I think it is brilliant.. also the text fgrom the stuff for this heading

If you don’t, you’ll constantly succumb to the tyranny of the urgent. Also, find a different environment in which to do this activity — preferably one that’s relaxed and conducive to open-ended thinking. “
