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.

jam211Still going

My charity box has grown to 5€
I don`t really miss porn so much but one addiction is coming back. Playstation games.
Damn I haven`t been playing those games for 2 years now but sometimes I still wish I could have time. But now I´m trying to read more books and grow to be more socially. Maybe if I reduce mmore internet and stop watching bad movies.

jam211My charity challenge

This is weird but lets see. So between 1.5-1.9 every time I mb I´m going to give 2€ to charity and if I watch porn its 5€. I haven`t yet decided what organisation to give that money. I´m really miserly so it wont be much. 2 years ago

jam211almost there

Hi everybody. Haven`t got anything interesting to write for sometime. I´m still focusing to get rid of porn habit. That is going better and better. Last month a watched porn 4 time and this month just one. And mb just once a week.

Last weekend I was at Alexander technique course . I believe that anyone from her would profit from that. It`s main focus is to unlearn useless habits. Right posture is so important for good health and mental focus. You don`t see Buddha sitting at hunch. Was that the right word…

Good advices. It really comes down to changing your habits. 2 years ago


Doing great for porn field. Now my time goes for studying healthier habits. Although being happy and healthy should be really simple but this culture just doesn’t make it so.

jam211Day 10

Finally beyond day 7. I was reading Think and Grow Rich and wound interesting topic.

“Napoleon Hill devoted a full chapter to the transmutation of sex energy in his classic book Think and Grow Rich. He found that the most successful people were highly sexed, achieving great success by directing their sexual energy into their work. In this article I’ll explain how to use sex energy to set goals that align with your natural biochemical arousal triggers, such that you find yourself taking action towards your goals more easily.” 2 years ago

Now heavy lifting would be nice if I could get some sleep. I don`t exercise so my any more cos my lack of sleep. It would just pump up cortisol. But I do some light exercise like walking and stretching. 2 years ago

jam211Going to break this day 7 plateau

So day 7 and 8 has been the most difficult. Now I really have to be proactive and keep myself busy. Also the night and mornings are dangerous. I Have to make sure that I get sleep when I´m at bed and wake up refreshed.

Yeah. After little progress I failed when I was not present and alert. It is part of the journey and I know I can do better than this but breaking that bad habits isn’t always so easy. I just have to remind myself what kind of progress I had made past year and not to give up. I welt little pain today witch I´m thankful cos its makes me remember the teaching. 2 years ago

So still going with porn free month. Now it`s easy to go 7 day without mb but then temptations start. So used to instant gratification. That habit won`t go so easy. Just have to keep clean diet and good quality sleep and be proactive. And have faith… 2 years ago


Just finished reading Mastery by George Leonard. It was one of those book that I had to read at once. Interesting things about learning and staying on path. What it really takes on to becomes a master and love the journey. So last month was almost porn free but I wasn’t on the path at the beginning. So now I`m going to make next porn free month at this year. I`m going to make calender at every month and but it on the wall so I track my process better. 2 years ago


yeah. Its just sad that some people waste their life on something like this
Its just easier to troll on anonymous on net than try to get along with real life. 2 years ago


Another week without porn. I think its just huge waste of time. I have kick-boxing and yoga class 3 times a week and when I´m home I have to cook, clean, read take singing lessons so I really don’t have any extra time. I did mb once this week. Now most time I get tempted is when I´m in bed going to sleep or waking up. It`s weird how much you can accomplish when you just focus on right things. 2 years ago


Yes its all about momentum and constant effort. There is always some obstacle to over come. 2 years ago
