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. one. thing. always on my mind.
It’s what I fight for every day, in every controversy.
This seems like the wall between me and happiness. Once I know my worth, everything will come my way!
Once I know that people disagreeing with me, criticizing me, or getting angry with me don’t mean that they don’t love me anymore – then everything will bring me joy.
I have to know that I’m irreplacable. Because everyone is. That I’m lovable for being me, with whatever skills and flaws I may have and be. 5 years ago


I doubt I’ll ever be well-balanced, but I have come much closer to knowing my own worth. I know I am a great person and that I do not always have to be the one saving the situation (as I’m not always the one who’s “ruined” it!). Embarassing silences get less embarassing when you just leave them be.

Still, I’d like to feel anger more than I do now – I feel sadness when someone criticizes me, sadness that this person is probably right – instead of anger that this person dare insult me!
I’d like to know my worth and rights. That I have the right to be exactly as I am and like as long as it doesn’t hurt anyone – and that I don’t always have to be the one apologizing. 7 years ago
