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.

be true to myself
what if my true self sucks?

i’m nowhere near good looking, cameras make me look like a monster.
i stopped being true because it makes me loathe seeing myself in the mirror. my mind always find errors in people’s ways, and if i don’t hold myself, every word of my mouth will hurt everyone. and i am no friend to women.

since every person is different, is it possible that i am the worst combination of personas?

is finding the true self worth it? what if others don’t like my true self?

what if my true self sucks?

improve myself

i FEEL selfish, i feel my importance fleeting, no- my reason for existence fleeting. my family always say “you can do it!”,
but i just cant find the motivation nor the willpower to change.
am i so hard-headed that i cant even move a finger towards the change?

what if my true self hurts others?

my college performance sucks,i’m still single, and i’m lazy.

sometimes i wonder, is it really worth my family’s resources to support and raise ME? the worthless and insignificant me?

how do i even start changing? what is the procedure??

and i wish i could stop whining on internet like this, but losers who have no willpower nor strength like me had no right to stand proud like all you people and can only whine.. like a stray dog..


I want to:
