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.

I have to admit, I’ve been here before and realize life is a cyclic in nature. I suppose I wish I had a feeling of sustenance, a feeling that I accept life every single day for at least 3 or 4 months straight – I think that would feel great! 6 years ago

Prayer, meditation and spiritual living are the ingredients… 9 years ago


mostly what people do is that, that they strive for more and are never satisfied with what they have. one should struggle for those things that are needed and not because others have it so i should have them too.

sometimes when u r like have comparison/competition with others, u never see what u have. u always go for what others have and that brings a lot of frustration in ur life.

sometimes it happens with me but then im able to balance out myself. 9 years ago

TimothyI've been working on this al LONG time. . .

And probably will never complete the goal.
My experience is that the more you accept yourself, the more you accept others. Conversely, the more you accept others, the more accepting you can be of yourself. I go to an Episcopal church that is an “Oasis” community. That means they accept all people regardless of race, age, financial condition, sexual preference, etc. The name of the game is Diversity: I love it. 9 years ago
