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 can count this as done. I don’t over analyze or jump to conclusions anymore. It was difficult at 1st, but now it is 2nd nature not to guess. 7 years ago

sugarbabybabyI have a friend

who I am close to. We where chatting one day and all of a sudden he got real quiet and I am quite sure that I heard him say “I love you.” I was kind of taken aback and I said, “what?” He replied, “nothing.” What is that all about? Can’t he just say it again? I really wasn’t too sure about his words he said it in a whisper! Argh! If I mean it I will say it…I won’t chicken out! is it that big of a deal for a guy to say “I love you?” 8 years ago

sugarbabybabyNo assumptions

Yep! Can’t make asssumptions! 8 years ago

sugarbabybabyHard to do...

for me especially! I always seem to over analyze everything…it is a fault of mine. SOme say it is an asset, but I see it differently. I seem to “think outloud” for other people and I assume things that aren’t even said. Wish I could make this “chatter” stop… 8 years ago


I still jump to SOME conclusions, don’t get me wrong. But I’m certainly a much calmer, more trusting person than I was a few months back. 9 years ago

Sarahkeep on keeping on

this is hard. being with somebody i trust is helping, tho i still find myself slipping back into jealousy and paranoia quite easily. oops! 9 years ago

SarahHoping now

To be honest, I think I am progressing with this goal. I’m less jealous and paranoid than I used to be, and I try hard to ask questions if something is bothering me, rather than just assuming what I’m thinking is the right thing.

I don’t think I’m quite there yet, but I’m definately working on it, and I feel a lot better for it :) 9 years ago
