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.

Beat this depression that I have...


Entries from everyone

Listen closely...I've done it.

I haven’t been Depresssed Since my last hospital visit 5 months ago. 7 years ago

Listen closely...Someday Maybe...

I just returned from another Hospital visit. I really do wish I could beat this depression that over takes me. It gets to be way too much some times… 7 years ago

Listen closely...Well the depression won out...

I just had a stay in the hospital. Not My favorite place to be let me tell you. I was going to kill myself. So I asked My DB’s mom if she would drive me to the hospital. I signed myself in. Always much better than being 302ed. They changed my meds like they always do. So I am still depressed and I got a new DX as well. PTSD. Oh boy just what I need…. 8 years ago

Listen closely...I wish I could explain it...

It just over comes me and hangs around. I can’t find it’s beginning to help solve it. My Dr. said the I have S.A.D. So it just may be the time change and the fact that it is getting dark earlier. I just feel like going to bed and pulling the covers up over my head and staying there for a very long time. I don’t necessarily have suicidal thoughts. I just think if I were to die it wouldn’t be any great loss. I know this too shall pass. I just hope that it is sooner rather than later. 8 years ago
