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.

No problem. Your hard work is paying off. 17 months ago

You can join livemocha to help with your English. It is still free, but now you have to check other people’s lessons in your language to earn points to pay for your lessons.

By the way, your English and spelling are better than most Americans. I should know; I’m American. You would be surprised at how many people in this country cannot write or speak properly. 17 months ago


Your mother should not have said that to you. Unfortunately, our self esteem is often tied up in what our parents say to us about ourselves. If YOU don’t like your body type then go to the gym and work out. That idea was so intimidating to me until I finally started going. I had no alternative because I started taking care of an elderly relative who was too heavy for me to handle. She was causing me to strain my back and I knew I could not afford to have back problems. I got in shape that the results were amazing. I also started eating right because I wanted quicker results.

As for women being attracted to you, you would be surprised how many women are looking for someone who is intelligent, sweet and… whatever it is they like. Intelligence, personality and faith are at the top of my list. Looks—I typically deal with those later. Being able to connect with someone is more important to me. I’m not the only woman who thinks like this. This is why you will find beautiful women with guys who may not be so physically attractive to others. i haven’t read much about you yet, but don’t be a door mat, have good hygiene and good conversation and you are on your way to a girlfriend, buddy. 17 months ago


Have you tried social media to market your book? Since it’s free it is worth a shot. imo youtube is a great place to start. You should find a very popular person who deals with similar or related topic matter that you discuss in your books and make a response video and link it to one of the other person’s highest viewed vids. The premise is that you know that video is getting a lot of traffic, which will raise the probability of people seeing your video, as well. Also, you should have more than one video on your channel so that once people watch the first video on your channel, they’ll watch another. I never subscribe to channels that only have 1 vid unless it was recently uploaded and is super interesting. You could make your vids on different topics that you address in your books or you could make 1 video per book.

In addition, don’f forget about facebook and twitter. They are really useful as promotional tools. Once you create a buzz and get more sales, you can consider putting your book in a bookstore. 17 months ago

You should try first. It is… well used to be… an amazing website that rivals Rosetta Stone—and its free. It was recently purchased by Rosetta Stone because it was one of their biggest rivals. Now it requires that you check other people’s lessons to gain points so that you can use your points to purchase your lessons without using actual money. It used to be totally free and simple, but I guess there’s a new sheriff in town. 17 months ago

VeeShaythis is food for thought

Thanks for writing this post. I’m working really hard to always remember to put God first. But I realized that I resisted Him many times before, which decreased my sensitivity to Him and increased my ability to do so again and again.

Lately, things have been off track for me so I’m re-positioning myself in every way I can think of. For me one of the biggest ways to remember to consider Him is to read my bible every day. 2 years ago
