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.

amania10. I am insanely lucky

Ha ha ha ;) 2 years ago

amania9. I am not giving up

so easily :) I wil try again and again and again until I reach what I want.

Phew, one more trait and I am done with this goal – it is more difficult than I thought! 2 years ago

amania8. I am sincere

I am trying to be sincere with others. Especially about my feelings. I am trying not to lie about my abilities or mood. When people ask me what I think – I try to tell them the truth or at least be diplomatic. 2 years ago

amania7. I am brave

I thought that I am not very bold or courageous, but sometimes I can show some bravery :D and I am proud of it. I am still afraid of many (sometimes quite stupid) things but now I am more tipped into a brave side. Yesterday I decided to tell my boss all I think about recent unpleasant situation that had happened at work. I was the only one to do this – everybody else was too afraid. All in all I don’t think my words change anything – but I was courageous enough to state my opinion. My boss told me she’s grateful that I am honest. 2 years ago

amania6. I am trusting

I know that some people think that being too trusting at times can be dangerous. I don’t think I’m gullible though. I just believe that things sort out on their own and I don’t have to control them too much. I try to see good in people too. 2 years ago

amania5. I can admit when I'm wrong

Everybody is wrong sometimes, right? I have no problem admitting it and saying “sorry”. 2 years ago

amania4. I am assertive

I think I am self-assertive in situations that require to say no. I realized it when I talked to my sister and she told me how easily she was influenced by other people. 2 years ago

amania3. I am open-minded

This is something I am still working on. I consider myself to be rather open-minded and tolerant person. I try to judge others as little as possible and I don’t condemn people even if I don’t agree. 2 years ago

amania2. I am optimistic

I think I see the world in bright colours (it’s not always been like this), I am a happy person. I am proud I was able to change my general attitude :) 2 years ago

amania1. I am persistent

I work on my goals, sometimes slower sometimes faster but if I want to do something I will do it or at least try. I admit that sometimes I am too stubborn (I’m a typical Taurus after all) but being persistent is somewthing I am proud of – it let me do many things other people keep asking: How did you do this? 2 years ago
