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.

abigail2004Note to self

You really are not unstoppable as you think you are and you are not as amazing in the eyes of others are you may think.
Arrogance just like lack of confidence is fixated on what others may think or in the least bit, manipulating others so that they think of us what we pretend to think of ourselves.

I am not one thing. I am a collection of different attributes and qualities. Most of all, I am adaptable. Arrogance is stagnant, it’s stuck, it remains.

Being able to say ‘I’m sorry, yes it was me, yes that was my fault, i could do better’ sets one of a more adaptable and humble path.

The humble one who can be exceptionally brilliant but incredibly lowly about it triumphs over the one who is secretly mediocre but flaunts as if they are unstoppable. 14 months ago


CabrioleanI don't have high self-esteem overall...

...I don’t like my body very much, I hate my handwriting etcetera, but I tested in the top 2% of the population at least, and had the reading level of an adult by the age of eight. I know my appearance is average, so it took me a while to notice that sometimes when people said things I didn’t care to hear I would think, almost subconsciously, “I’m smarter than you.” 1 year ago

evanslv01it's not confidence it's arrogance, apparently

i’ve just left high school and throughout the past two years several teachers commented on how cocky i am. i’ve always been confident but there’s a thin line between being self-confident and being an arrogant know-it-all. at times i have found this line. i need to cross it permanently and never look back. i don’t even realise when i am being arrogant so maybe i need to take more notice of what is coming out of my mouth. or my body language, because hey, maybe standing there with my hands on my hips isn’t 100% ‘approachable’.
my catchphrase is ‘i’m not being arrogant, but i am better than you’. just kidding. i’m not that bad. hopefully. 2 years ago

i know i m arrogant… 3 years ago


1RLI see what you've done there...

There are enough ignorant people in the world. Why in all of my good graces should I even dare deprive the world of my certainty?

I know better than to do such a silly thing.

We, the people, should cling to our wits as though it were the very sands of time, as with our age no new neurons grow or develop post birth.

Thinking is globally regarded as the highest paying job position in any field, but I’m sure you’ve thought of that by now. 3 years ago

SpeshLTonySincerity and Appreciation are the keys

...I understood it better when I married someone who loves me for my faults and my strengths, and is always there to support me as I try to be a better partner. 3 years ago


MJI'm trying...

My Mentor has pointed this out to me on numerous occasions, and while I believe I have improved, I know I have a long way to go. It isn’t something I do consciously, but I do acknowledge that I come across as arrogant often. Sometimes it’s word choice or tone, but it is an undesirable trait and one I want to control. 5 years ago
