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.

- The Robots.

I got to know those who I envied, and realized there was nothing to envy. 4 years ago

greendreamerI have battles in my head

over how I should feel. I hate the sides of me that are envious and angry at people for unnecessary reasons. I feel like one of those people I dont like. For those of you who have ‘done it’, how do you let go? 7 years ago


I’m sure that I haven’t lost my jealousy. BUt I am less jealous of people than i was. I seem to be appreciating how good I have it. 8 years ago

KnotsIt's not their fault

that I’m a failure…I helped my non tech friend Donnie write a story for the AFP about the missing Philip K Dick robot, for about 5 days, I was really proud of it. But over the last few days, as the story has picked up steem in the blogosphere(what a shitty word). Donnie has been contacted by a variety of cool internet news sources (no names, but we ALL read ‘em) asking him for follow up work, etc. Donnie, who I really like, doesn’t know dick about the story. In fact he didn’t even realise it was news worthy untill I told him. So I am WAY envious of him as I sit at my evil slave wage job, helping morons understand HDTV, when I could be…oh damnit 8 years ago

spicytakoyumi wanna trust him...

i love my boyfriend so much- he means everything to me. we fight so much nowadays, and its all because of stupid jealousy and me not trusting him. we cry everynight together, saying were sorry for fighting, and i just dont want to do that anymore- eventually we will both just get tired of it, and leave. i dont want our relationship to end- how can i be less jealous, and trust him? i hate being so cheesy, and the excessive crying is really bothering me. i wanna be happy!!! with myself, and be much more confident, and have a higher self-esteem. i dont want to hurt my boyfriend anymore. 8 years ago

JerseyGirlrelating to being less envious

As difficult as it may seem, it’s easier to let go of the envy/jealousy and be happy for others than to let the anger/jealousy/envy fester. Wish people well and be truly happy for their good fortune, opens up the path for good fortune to come to our own door step! :-)

I went through this years ago and wasted precious time and energy upset about others good fortune instead of appreciating my own and working towards my own goals… :-) 9 years ago
