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.

This is a thing which i have to do… 3 years ago


i am confuse of people actions… i completely lost my way to be honest i lost myself in respecting relations and loving people… now it really hurts… till yet my all friends cheated me and the reason was i loved and trust them so much and i was a stupidly honest for them….and now i`m all alone and afraid, afraid of everything and everyone, in my this 19 years i saw things which were so painful but now i wanna live my life but can`t deal with my tenderness and kindness, i can`t hurt anyone what should i do? i even couldn’t hurt people who hurt me badly, and when i do something wrong my heart punish me so much… now a war begun between my mind and heart and i`m dying in this war…. don`t know what to do, it hurts so much…. now i lost my self confidence and afraid from everything… i hate myself too much and sometimes i hurt me for this… i can’t forgive myself that still i give chance for people, still love them and still care for them… i afraid what people think about me… i can never forgive myself…... 4 years ago

redheadjo33THIS IS ME EXACTLY!!!!!

I lost someone that I love deeply today. He told me that he couldn’t be with me anymore because I didn’t know how to love myself. He kept saying that he wanted to help me but that he couldn’t do it anymore. This isn’t the first time this has happened and it breaks my heart every time. I want to love myself. I want to be happy. I want to stop thinking I’m not good enough compared to others. I WANT TO BE FREE!!!!! 6 years ago


all this stuff is going to be hard for me becuse all this stuff kinda discribes me. love myself is not going to be very hard but stop needlessly applogizing thats going to be hard.stop caring about what others think! now thats not so hard with a little help from my friends i could be easy. all of the rest will be hard but i know i can do it.

I took a huge step backwards today. Stupid bitches in my class talking shit about me.
Now I feel like shit. I know how disgusting I am. And so does everybody else. 7 years ago


This is basically what I’ve spent my entire life trying to do.
But maybe one day I will get there :) 7 years ago


You just summed up the story of my entire life. But I applaud you for trying!
