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.

JulieAllow yourself to be selfish.

Allow yourself to be selfish. Of course, most of people who have low confidence or low self-esteem will think selfishness on a different level to what regular people might interpret it.

A regular person might think to be selfish is to ignore the fact that a pregnant woman needs to get into the taxi to get to the hospital but the person gets in before her because he is late to go to work.

Someone who lacks self-esteem might think to be selfish is to think of their own desires and acting upon them is disgraceful.

Yes, there are limits but indulge in yourself every so often. If other people do the things you keep yourself away from, why aren’t you allowed to do it as well? 6 years ago

So today I realize that people take advantage of the last couple of nice people that exist on this planet, and I seem to be one of them. I love being known to be nice but I lend people things that I paid for and they don’t come back. I feel like because I know the person they will obviously have my back and yet they seem to forget where they came from. I am tired of being walked all over, at work, at home, by guys…It gets old and I have to say that it will continue no longer! I am standing up and putting my foot down. 6 years ago


I usually don’t mind this because I have been used to this. Lately it has been bugging me because I’m being horrible to myself and finding things I don’t like about myself. I’ve been told by my husband several times that I keep getting walked on.

I enjoy being a nice person and I wish people saw it as being nice. I don’t like being taken advantage of and I expect other people don’t like it either. I’m also a quiet person, I barely speak my mind even for the smallest things.

This will be a gradual process but I would like to succeed in this goal. 6 years ago
