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.

Recent entries from my_world

my_worldI hope you're okay.

You deserve better than this. The thing is about having nothing is that you have nothing to lose. I am 22 and a year ago, I had a complete breakdown & realized I had absolutely nothing in my life. I gave it my all and my life changed around between hard work and some luck. I still have a lot to work on, of course.

You will be surprised what you’re capable of when you try. Put your self out there. Keep yourself busy. Don’t settle for less because you deserve better.

I hope you’re doing okay. Take care. 23 months ago

my_worldI'm finally admitting I have a problem

I had an anxiety attack last night. Usually when I have one it’s debilitating beyond belief. My roommate had to stay up and take care of me. I just cried and cried afterwards.

I’m so sad today. 3 years ago

I accept I can’t wake up to an alarm. I’m thinking of getting one of those alarms that’s supposed to go around your room & you have to get up to turn it off. I have a feeling that’s not going to work either. 3 years ago


I’m scared to get another major panic attack again. I had one a few weeks ago. I’ll probably have another one in a few months. I suck. 3 years ago
