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.

be a better mother
My son

I am so sorry for making your life so hard. You father really did love me, but I didn’t love myself and couldn’t find a way to be happy. It is all my fault that your father and I are no longer together. Now he has remarried and is happerier. Know if I had the chance to fix things I would…I never meant to hurt you…I am trying to make things right with you

forgive myself and others
Need to be true with myself

I hate that my mother had me at 15 years old, doesn’t know who my birth father is. She left me with my grandparents, who were extremly disfunctional. I never learned how to save money, learn the importants of an education. I have nothing to fall back on. I am reaching 40 soon and do not know how to come out of this all.

How do I turn my life around…get an education, find true real love, get out of debt and live debt free going forward. Buy a home, get real about my life and choice made in my past…I ruined many relationships do to running from my past. I hope the men that tried to love me forgive me for all the problems I cause them. I hope they don’t think all was lost in trying to love me.

I want to be a good person, trust people, love and be loved

make more female friends
new friends

I have never really had many friends let alone female friends. I want to have girlfriends, people you can have dinner with, go to the gym, travel, cry on a shoulder.

How do you meet straight friends in the bay area?
