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 happy
im skeptical to write to this thread..

being happy is too broad. too deep to construed. sometimes we thought we already have it and sometimes we felt we already knew the core definition of it despite of the signs and warnings taht it brought to us and the precoutions that it has we still insist and in the end it leads us to nowhere, we thought that we are complete but still it isn’t what it seems to be. everything needs to be balanced our emotions, physical conditions, spiritual beliefs, social communications..elements which needs to be in proper equilibrium. recently i tried a hundred of times to understand that concept and until now im striving to be afloat and feel the redemption inside to search for the answer. i wanted to be happy just like anyone else but i wanted to be happy in a good way that it’ll not affect the balancing of my own four concept, anyone of us wanted to be part of the so called elysium of happiness right that why i wanted to grab that opportunity and fill in the blank inside me. i thought ive done this but i need to talk alot to myself and intertwine with my ego’s deepest behavior.—

make people feel beautiful
woww positivity leads to undisputable persistency.

i often do it to everyone..eventhough they didn’t return the favor..but its still 100% cool. i myself feel better when someone give a positive compliment at makes me feel lighter and more persistent to go along with the great flow of the worlds evolution. and I wanted to do the same to them too….i knew that it’ll affect their way of thinking too..make them beautiful is like alleviating their minor suffering.

Donate my Blood for a cause in redcross.
Blood is life, so we should share it.

I donated my blood in the redcross last 2 years ago. i prepared a lot for that day, i did exercised, regular diet and constant assesment of myself, i wanted my blood to be cleansed before i decided to give it. here in our country its worth a bucks but i decided to just donate it rather taking something from it, my blood is precious, priceless and really worthful for people who badly needed one. it took up 2 years before I planned again to donate my blood next month because i abused myslelf for the past 2 years, like smoking, drinking liquor constantly and a lot of hilarious, dangerous intake materials. today i’m currently craving myself to clean up my blood even if the my environment is really not good at all. here poverty indures people to give and take something even if their blood is at stake. im hoping that not by just donating my blood next month i could also enlightens people’s mind that blood is worth giving and i’ll start it with my cohort who always at my side.
