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.

people tell me I’m a very pessimistic person. And I know that I am. And every now and then it would be nice to not see the world as such a negative place. 4 years ago


I feel like everyday is kind of being wasted by me even though I try so so hard to breathe in every single particle of life. I’m kind of a really depressed person, and I’m so tired of having that linger in the back of my mind. I feel like just knowing that is holding me back so much. I love nature and the earth and I really do love my life, I just have a hard time being happy. So I’ve decided to start spending more of my time in a park with a notebook and just sitting there writing all of my thoughts and relaxing and smoking cigarettes. Because life is so short, and I feel like I need to be the first out of the people I know to make a point of having a better outlook 5 years ago


i wake up way to late, and go to bed way to early. I never smile becauset that what I want to do. i never laugh when somethings really funny. i dont gwet outta bed and put on my make up with a beautiful smile and tell myself “you could conquer the world” its just not who i am anymore. i just wanna be happy again. i wanna be able to wake up smiling and start my day how i used to everyday. i wanna be able to go hang out with my friends and not get asked one time whats wrong and if im okay. i wanna be happy again. i wanna have a positive outlook on life. im sick and tired of being sick and tired of life. i wanna live. 6 years ago

AshleyMy outlook as of now...

My outlook on life as of now isn’t the best. I think things can only get worse and not better. And now I want to change that because I am sick of being sad and angry all the time, and want to be happy with a good outlook on life. 9 years ago
