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.

A question about this goal: commiting suicide February 26th, 2006 06:40


WEll, I highly am opposed to this method.
The bible asks us to die to ourselves. And so in my particular case my reference to ‘die’ is, dying to myself. Living in Christ Jesus instead, the only one who has the power to change the man I am/was.
Put on the new creation and be born again.
I pray this will give you insight at least if nothing else from my angle. Life is precious, even now in my darkest days, (having made 2 precious baby boys and ending up later divorced-or-soon-to-be), I have hope, hope that all of this pain and refining will be used for gods glory and I am coming out the other side with a testimony. I pray that all will find Christ Jesus and that none will perish. Life and Life more abundantly. Dying daily to ones self is not easy, I am still beginning to learn. But LIFE is something I have seen, I must learn to walk in newness of life. Be well, stay, and live. I am here if you need me.

dude,get a life

Dude, don’t be unnecessarily rude to SirDanielSan. He was just trying to help/offer his opinion. And he even offered help to others, which is a great thing to do.

If you don’t agree with his particular outlook/beliefs, that’s fine; I don’t agree with him on all things either, but there is MUCH truth in his words (whether you believe in Jesus [pbuh] or not). So don’t dog on him and tell him to “get a life,” because he obviously DOES have one!


crazy_lu is smiling

so i figured out that there is no perfect way to kill yourself…anything you do will be messy….the only non messy way is hiring a hitman or jumping out in front of a speeding car…i mean yea thats messy but that should definitely be a sure way of dying. i would recommend jumping out a bldg or something…but im scared of heights.
