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.

snowylandscapePart of a new community

Last week I went jogging with a friend and I really enjoyed the company of the other joggers. We agreed to go next week as well, and I promised myself not to find excuses for ditching.

You see, I can ditch a thing I enjoy just as easily as a thing I don’t.

Plus, sports have always been an issue for me. So…

To cut a long story short, I felt this could be the community where I find the One. 2 years ago


In the past two weeks I tried to focus more on this goal and I have already noticed the changes. I see more guys looking at me or simply seeing me and I also find it easier to communicate with them. Finally I don’t turn away my face shyly.

So now I only have to stay focused to attract and find the right guy.

I feel liberated and more confident now. 2 years ago

snowylandscapeStill trying hard

I still find this task difficult. Mainly because at the moment I can’t concentrate solely on this goal. But if I could, I guess I’d find other excuses. It’s very difficult to stay focused.

I’ve never been able to imagine that I’m loved by a man. I’ve aways been ridiculed for my crushes by my peers and of course I mainly fell for the wrong guys.

This is what I have to change.

I’m not the same girl and I’m not surrounded by the same peers anymore. I should move on. But somehow I just can’t weave my own Cinderella story scene.

But I’ll try. Promise. 2 years ago

snowylandscapeWhy this goal?

You see I love my job. A tad bit way too much as it happens. My job is my hobby. Yes, I’m that lucky.

Also I’ve just moved into a new apartment that I immensely enjoy transforming, so that it reflects my personality.

These two things take up all my free time. They shouldn’t.

I’m getting older and older, so I’d better get in shape and find a husband if I don’t want to remain alone.

And I don’t.

Also like most people I have very high expectations. But then I should upgrade myself to earn someone who’s that good. 2 years ago
