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.

lemonwaterMore thinking

My old coach appears to be back on the scene but this coach has disappointed me MANY times before. With my anxious nature, I run possible scenarios involving me getting back into jiu jitsu and where I would practice. When my old coach left, jiu jitsu came to be an endeavor filled with anxiety, especially social anxiety. I have gone to school many times, sat in the parking lot, and just driven off, due to my shyness. With this coach, I didn’t have this problem. I wonder if I would have it now. At this time, the coach’s new school is a LONG drive for me so I am not making any commitments. Also, when the coach left I had so many mixed feelings, including anger and resentment. I don’t know if I can go back to that coach. It’s just that with anyone else so far, I’ve often been too anxious to even walk in the door. 4 months ago

lemonwaterI take a photo almost every day

The iPhone camera makes it very easy, as does having an Apple computer. You can just take your photos down from the cloud! So easy! 4 months ago

lemonwaterVictim-like thinking

I have been in a frame of mind where things appear to me to be set up to cause me to fail. Past week has been very hard. So, dear Victim card, I’m going to have to turn you in. You no longer serve me. 4 months ago

lemonwaterNew Dishwasher Installed

Also I am over on pop clogs now! I hope anyone (especially from the depression and self care / love myself goals) please say hello over there!
I was a little embarrassed because their goals seem more lofty like “Re-do my entire kitchen” but I like to break it down into smaller and for me, more achievable, bites. I would like to re-do our kitchen but for now I am sticking with replacing broken appliances. 4 months ago

lemonwaterGoals for my Stay-Cation (draft)

4. Pay bills
5. Look in the garage closet – what is in there?
6. Stop spending money

lemonwaterFor no reason

I am feeling depressed, anxious, and nauseous for no reason. I have been trying to plump myself up by looking at pictures of Gigi Buffon, who is my favorite player. I find all the emotion displayed in soccer to be very funny. Possibly in this photo #1 is looking at some play gone wrong. 4 months ago

lemonwaterI am going to check out pop clogs

and see how it goes. I like to make lists. I will keep my same username. Apparently to pop your clogs means to die. Not sure about that but I know I will really miss 43t and the people here, so I hope maybe we can continue on pop clogs or some other site.
My morning glory plant flowered today!!!! At 1pm, oddly!!!!

I don’t think you add status updates on pop clogs. I think you list your goals like a bucket list. 4 months ago

lemonwaterCopper Sauce Pan

I was cooking quinoa and forgot about it, burning my sauce pan, and the quinoa. I have been making do with a smaller one but I decided I would up my game and replace my normal one with a copper one. It looks great!!! Will try it out with next week’s quinoa and see if it functions as good as it looks. I have not used a copper pot before. 5 months ago

lemonwateractually I do not care that much

if people find my posts funny. I mainly just post for me. I like to find funny pictures in order to help me feel better as the day goes on. I also like to look back on them. Many times looking at others’ posts and sometimes even my old ones has given me a chuckle. An example is this one here; looks like the Azzurri are upset with the call. 5 months ago

lemonwaterSubscribed to me?

I have 17 people subscribed to me? This amazes me, that people would like my posts. Interesting, but I don’t understand it. If you subscribe to me, please comment below and tell me what made you do it? I suspect it has to do with my great choices in pictures. It can take me up to 30 min searching google images to find the right picture to create the correct mood for what I am trying to describe in my post. I like this one with Gigi Buffon #1 Juventus and Azzuri goalkeeper. 5 months ago


I am disappointed that 43t will not be around anymore after Aug 15. I liked making posts about my goals and reading others’ progress or struggles with their goals. I struggle with depression and anxiety and I do think 43t has helped me. I wonder if there is another place (tumblr? instagram? not facebook) where we can meet similar people but still be anonymous and speak freely. 5 months ago

but I made it through the day 5 months ago


I’ve been following this a little more since the world cup. Buffon and Pirlo are currently with Juventus. The Juventus coach just changed. I like the emotion displayed by the players. 5 months ago

lemonwater-1 to +1

My mood has been in the middle more days than not, like between -1 and +1 with -5 being worst and +5 being best. At least not feeling like a train wreck right now. I guess if I were in a train wreck, I’d be dead, or maimed, and I’d just have to focus on getting better. 5 months ago
