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.

timothy woodhead Its a choice

A day of meaningful activity is better than a day of mindless amusement. Even a concious descion to play video games would be better
than just drifting through the day. 5 months ago

oh goodness. i am going to puke. i am actually going to physically be ill and crawl under the desk and die because nothing is woekingnkngr. and no matter what my bff says, i think i am pretty stupid. i am good at critical thinking and writing when i have put a huge amount of thought into it. but isn’t everyone? isnt everyone good at that stuff if they would just THINK. albeit i do feel as if my brain no longer serves any function. i dont know why i even try. why am i even in physics. why do i waste time applying for anything and taking any kind of class when i am too stupid to do this one thing.

i dont even know what im doing with my life. i was forced into a corner and locked in a box then the box was finally opened and i had no idea where i was or what to do when i left. its just more convenient to stay in the box, but like i always say, convenience isnt a good reason to do anything but i literally have no other reason. i wish i was as smart as everyone thought i was and more. there is literally no way i can come back from this i think. i think i want it to be over. 9 months ago


first of all, friday was like the best day ever. honestly. but the preceding week and following days were and are the worst. THE WORST. i feel like dying. there is too much pressure, too many things going on that i literally dont care about at all. i want to cry it is so bad. i dont know why things are this awful. its so stressful and the stupidest thing is that half of the stresses are related to money. i hate stupid anguilla, i want to visit my sis, but why is the entire world against me.

i have toijfowrklrpokroi4rjoiwjr too many bookings. too much running around the entire godforsaken island. i hate the caribbean too. that just makes everything worse. i hate that stupid place. i never wanted to go back there but i pulled through and booked this stupid flight because i want to visit my sis but now everything is against me. and unfortunately its all my fault as well. i have the worst luck in the world. honestly. when anything is left to chance. or its like if i dont nitpick every little thing in the most annoying way, everything goes wrong. and thats whats happening now. 9 months ago

myawesomeadventuresyesterday was a very bad day. today was a very bad day.

today is possibly one of the worst days in a very long time for reasons and faults that are not my own-for once.

i thought everything was going OK but it turns out that seemingly calm time was just time for the endgame to build in its horrific glory. 10 months ago

Ahhhh its been so long. I thought everything would be fine, but its falling apart. Scratch that, I am falling apart. I have never stressed so much about exams or anything. I have never doubted myself so much. I want to cry. I hate this. I hate everything. I want it to stop. I can’t…. I don’t know what to do 14 months ago
