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.

Juoda1331. At what time in your recent past have you felt most passionate and alive?

Then I found out, that I won a tickets into Positivus festival in Latvia. Then I got a call from Power Hit Radio, who informed me about winning. It was amazing. I spoke live on radio and after that I just can’t to concentrate on my tasks, because my hands was shaking and adrenalin filled my veins. That was amazing. And then I called my friend, with who I going into that festival. She was exited exactly like me! Amazing experience! 1 month ago

Juoda1330. What is your happiest childhood memory? What makes it so special?

Somehow I don’t remember my childhood. It’s just a blur, a pieces. It doesn’t make hole picture. 4 months ago


Juoda1329. Do you remember that time 5 years ago when you were extremely upset? Does it really matter now?

I don’t. I never let myself to concentrate at bad things. If something happening, I will survive. Some thing happen, because it just it. Some things happen, because at that moment You wanted that. And that’s it :) 4 months ago


Juoda1328. Has your greatest fear ever come true?

Sometime, truth come to You, then You are least expected. Sometime, You have to fight to found it. 4 months ago


Juoda1326. Would you rather lose all of your old memories, or never be able to make new ones?

I really can’t imagine, that someone can choose to never make new memories. I think, that old memories are extremely important to You, because it shapes You. Old memories makes You, who You are. But be stuck in the past – that’s terrible! There’s a lot of people who are loosing their memories because of illness or accident. And they can’t remember. So it’s not such a bad thing. 4 months ago


Juoda1325. What are you most grateful for?

Juoda1324. Which is worse, when a good friend moves away, or losing touch with a good friend who lives right near you?

Worse to lose touch with a good friend who lives right near you. Because then someone You love moves away, it’s not that You stop be friends with him/her. But then You losing touch with someone near You… It’s not the distance what’s move You both apart. It’s the fact, that one of You are growing in some kind of way. It’s part of live. But the worst part of losing friend is not the actually, it’s a memory about his/her. & people who are moved away is just wondering, searching. Even after a while it will back into You live as it was before or even more & better. 5 months ago


Juoda1323. Have you been the kind of friend you want as a friend?

Yes. But what kind of friend I want, it’s different than people my friends be with. It’s complicated. 5 months ago

Because of all things what happened in my life. I am the product of life. 5 months ago
