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.

clumsyfairyLIVE LOVE LAUGH

That should the world supposed to be right? Im going to start to think positively :D 5 months ago


For the last 15 years I’ve been in a constant state of loneliness and sadness. I don’t have any close friends and have never had a loving boyfriend. I was abused as a child which has resulted in me being withdrawn, awkward and very unsociable. Being around people in a social situation is like torture to me. I’m constantly worried that that I might do something to humiliate myself or that I don’t fit in. Perhaps that’s why I have no friends. I’ve only ever had one boyfriend (I’m 27 years old) who was also abusive although it took me a long time to realise. I just want to to have friends and someone to remember me on birthdays. I have no idea where I can go to meet people that doesn’t involve too much socialisation. I am thinking of attending some classes (art class, violin class etc) to see if I can meet people. I’m tired of being lonely and empty it’s time for me to live life and be happy! 5 months ago


Despite being unemployed and being temporarily separated by ❤, I realized that I’m finally happy. I find myself laughing and singing much now—a tell tale sign that I’m finally back to being my old sparkly self. 5 months ago

christie_90Long, overdue catch up

Last weekend I met up with one of my good university friends that I made from my course, we haven’t physically seen eachother in 2 years, although we catch up via phone and facebook. We decided a weekend getaway was a good idea so we ended up booking a weekend break at the Hilton Hotel.

It was so much fun and I cannot remember the last time I felt so relaxed. On the Saturday we went to the pool and sauna and then had dinner and hung out at the bar, then on the Sunday we had a few treatments. It definitely made us realise we should plan to meet up more often! 6 months ago


Turns out I wasn’t just not happy, but actually depressed.

HayootahYou are as happy as you make up your mind to be

The past cannot be changed, forgotten, edited, or erased. It can only be accepted

I need to tell myself this everyday. I’m putting it on a post-it on the bathroom mirror so I see it everyday.

Looking forward and looking up. 7 months ago

HayootahI can be..

vulnerable enough to admit that I’m not happy. To publicly state it on the internet. I have been cynical for so long that I don’t even remember what it’s like to be positive.

I feel like everybody else ( except the unhappy ones of course ) have figured out something I don’t know about how to just be, how to exist and be content.

I’m not happy, haven’t been, and I’m scared that other then the rare spurts of temporary joy my brain decides to agree to, I never will be.

I have developed a method for getting better that I have to assess as being completly off. I have to attain things …constantly. Nothing is good enough.

I have to work on this, and I have other issues – regret, guilt and shame can severely kill the spirit. However, I am not ashamed to say I’m unhappy as at least acknowledging it might get me the help I need. 8 months ago


A couple of days before – when I posted my first post about how awesome I was feeling -, I finally succeeded to change my way of thinking from negative to positive. I learned how to look at things positively and from the other side, always looking for the good things and asking myself what advantages do the situations I was going through have.

Now, before I start doing something, I always ask myself, whether it is really what I want, whether it would help me somehow or not and whether I would feel happy after I would finish it. This was possible thanks to my best friend here in Prague, who advised me to watch some videos with Teall, and I realized a lot of important things thanks to her philosophy. I could finally deal with my last oppressive quasi-relationship, I forgave and learned to say “sorry” (which is something I didn’t like doing and don’t usually do) as well as learned how to be thankful for things I have. These things changed my way of thinking and suddenly the desperate need for doing something that would make me happy was gone and I was simply happy.

Great! :) 8 months ago
