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.

Discover what is already inside you!117 different

I like unique. I like different. I don’t like when someone tries to be different for the sake of being different. I don’t like when people do what others do, and have done, without question or without a look inside themselves as to how THEY would do a thing whether its the way you cook chicken or who you call your God. I like when someone is themselves fully and if that happens to be different, great. If it happens to be what millions do or have done, great. Why? Because THAT is how I view me. I am all me all the way all the time. And its different as fuck. It’s dangerous and it’s real. It’s what makes me look forward to tomorrow. It’s what keeps me alive. And, it’s probably what will kill me. I will live and die being me. Not die trying to be something, someone or some place. I will die exactly who I have built myself into for the reasons why I have built that man.

Discover what is already inside you!# 99 being sad

Because it’s the friend that I know better than anything else in my 30 years. I won’t go into a long story about my life in this post, but I will say that I have lost everything that you currently have. I have lost everything you do not realize that you have. I have lost things that I never even had a chance to find or have because they were taken from me by others. I started with everything and had it all taken away before I could count to 100. Then when I was old enough to count to 100 I could count 100 nights of fear.

*(And this is not about what I have “gained” in this process of life)

These are things I cannot change now. These are things I could not change then. These are things I would do anything to have occurred differently. I am who I am right now because of the sum results of those that bore me and raised me and my choices after the age of reason.

So, being sad (at times) is one of my best friends because I know this well and it visits me like a comforter here and there and evermore. 13 months ago

Discover what is already inside you!45 things by a 90 yr old

1. Life isn’t fair, but it’s still good.
2. When in doubt, just take the next small step.
3. Life is too short not to enjoy it.
4. Your job won’t take care of you when you are sick. Your friends and family will.
5. Don’t buy stuff you don’t need.
6. You don’t have to win every argument. Stay true to yourself.
7. Cry with someone. It’s more healing than crying alone.
8. It’s OK to get angry with God. He can take it.
9. Save for things that matter.
10. When it comes to chocolate, resistance is futile.
11. Make peace with your past so it won’t screw up the present.
12. It’s OK to let your children see you cry.
13. Don’t compare your life to others. You have no idea what their journey is all about.
14. If a relationship has to be a secret, you shouldn’t be in it.
15. Everything can change in the blink of an eye… But don’t worry; God never blinks.
16. Take a deep breath. It calms the mind.
17. Get rid of anything that isn’t useful. Clutter weighs you down in many ways.
18. Whatever doesn’t kill you really does make you stronger.
19. It’s never too late to be happy. But it’s all up to you and no one else.
20. When it comes to going after what you love in life, don’t take no for an answer.
21. Burn the candles, use the nice sheets, wear the fancy lingerie. Don’t save it for a special occasion. Today is special.
22. Overprepare, then go with the flow.
23. Be eccentric now. Don’t wait for old age to wear purple.
24. The most important sex organ is the brain.
25. No one is in charge of your happiness but you.
26. Frame every so-called disaster with these words, ‘In five years, will this matter?’
27. Always choose Life.
28. Forgive but don’t forget.
29. What other people think of you is none of your business.
30. Time heals almost everything. Give Time time.
31. However good or bad a situation is, it will change.
32. Don’t take yourself so seriously. No one else does.
33. Believe in miracles.
34. God loves you because of who God is, not because of anything you did or didn’t do.
35. Don’t audit life. Show up and make the most of it now.
36. Growing old beats the alternative — dying young.
37. Your children get only one childhood.
38. All that truly matters in the end is that you loved.
39. Get outside every day. Miracles are waiting everywhere.
40. If we all threw our problems in a pile and saw everyone else’s, we’d
grab ours back.
41. Envy is a waste of time. Accept what you already have, not what you think you need.
42. The best is yet to come…
43. No matter how you feel, get up, dress up and show up.
44. Yield.
45. Life isn’t tied with a bow, but it’s still a gift. 14 months ago

Discover what is already inside you!JOURNEY

One of the absolute greatest bands ever coupled with the incredible voice of Steve Perry or the new lead singer. I saw Journey in concert last year and it was so surreal. I was taken back like “is this really happening? these amazing songs we have all heard at kareoke and belted out in our living rooms with friends, am I really finally catching the real deal live?” It was incredible. Faithfully, Open Arms, After All These Years, Don’t Stop Believin’, Wheel in The Sky, Lights…some of the greats of theirs. 14 months ago

Discover what is already inside you!113 Beatiful people...

The most beautiful people we have known are those who have known defeat, known suffering, known struggle, known loss, and have found their way out of the depths. These persons have an appreciation, a sensitivity, and an understanding of life that fills them with compassion, gentleness, and a deep loving concern. Beautiful people do not just happen.
— Elisabeth Kübler-Ross in 1975 14 months ago

Discover what is already inside you!Simple as this

Here’s what to do:

1. Take out a blank sheet of paper or open up a word processor where you can type (I prefer the latter because it’s faster).

2. Write at the top, “What is my true purpose in life?”

3. Write an answer (any answer) that pops into your head. It doesn’t have to be a complete sentence. A short phrase is fine.

Repeat step 3 until you write the answer that makes you cry. This is your purpose. 14 months ago
