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.

Know When To Trust

me too! And it’s always very easy for me to self doubt too the moment any “betrayal” of trust seems apparent, when it could just be things like the other person’s busy, or whatever. I think I WANT to trust because I WANT to believe everyone is trustworthy, therefore I give my trust away too easily 6 years ago


To tell you, it’s pretty hard to trust people for about 95%. Since I believe in things everybody tells me (I’m a big believer), it’s hard for me when to know that someone’s lying or telling the truth. But then I sometimes (very few times) know when not to trust. I wish I wasn’t a big believer because it makes me look like a big fool. 6 years ago


I wish I had an ability to know when to trust people and who I should trust. But all I can say is that I should never try to trust someone 100% because I might feel like that person betrayed me. If I knew when to trust, I wouldn’t have to think about it too much. But the problem is I can’t show that I don’t trust them. I sometimes show people of what I’m thinking and my feelings. 7 years ago
