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.

Blaine ByrumWhen trying to kick a bad habit.

The most important part is to HATE it. Talk about how bad it is for you. Like you would when you just ended a bad relationship and you’re trying to get over the person, even though you still miss them but you shouldn’t. You remind yourself how bad they were for you, how much they didn’t enhance who you were, how much damage they caused, you hang out with other people who don’t like them, you get all your friends to dislike them so that when you start to miss them, they refresh in your head how much better this decision is. It’s just like that. Build a hatred. 3 years ago


Get stuff out of room. Don’t be tempted. 4 years ago


i am proud to say that i am COMPLETELY over it. 6 years ago


i’m trying really hard to get over it. but the thought of them laughing at me in class infuriates me. i don’t get angry that easily to get angry from just people laughing at me… but these people were the same people who teased me when we were kids. especially her.

why are people like that?

whatever. i’m over it.
you know…
it should make me happy, instead…

because the biggest difference between the younger me and the present me is that i have friends who have my back, who love me and stand by me.

so… even if they dont like me… i have people who do, my friends, my family and only God can judge me. 6 years ago


... i am stopping it… 6 years ago


they will NOT get the best of me. i won’t let them, i can’t get so angry over this anymore…

i’m just not going to think about that stuff.
there is so much more to life…....................

and i’m willing to give him a chance now…. 6 years ago
