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.

oLovei can.

it’s scary to be around a big group of people-wher everyone knows everyone and everyone is talking about something that you know nothing about. I’m tired of being scared of talking and thinking that i may say something stupid. i’m not going to do that anymore. I’m not going to be scared of them anymore.

i may have something brilliant to say one day. 7 years ago


it wasnt easy, i’m still working on it. but with the help of therapist, self-help books and programs, my anxiety around people has decreased enormously. 8 years ago


I guess i always had it in me. For so long i was shy and then slowly i started to come out of my shell, but the discomfort was definitely still there. But after getting a job in retail and constantly having to talk to complete strangers i know longer find being with people i don’t know difficult. I feel that i could walk up to anyone and have no trouble starting a conversation…it’s kind of wonderfully amazing. 8 years ago


wow, meds really do work, or im just putting my mind to something. anyhow, my comfort level has gotten way up, im no longer thinking people are conspiring to ridicule me. but now that the voices and my anxiety has decreased, im finding that theres less to say.. or i dont have tthe motivation to talk. Arre my meds turning me into a zombie? Have i been an introvert all along? Do i need to find new friends? Am i empty-headed? 8 years ago
