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.

amaniaAutumn walking

One of the best things in the world! There are two places in my neighborhood that I visited several times lately. The park looks absolutely stunning with all the colors and hues. It is quite empty and the sounds of animals are calming. I like my walks there.

Autumn evenings are good for drinking hot drinks and learning (or playing games from time to time). Of course there is a lot of fun things to do in the evenings like reading, watching the movies I planed on watching earlier or just playing with my cat.

Sometimes I wonder how my evenings would look if I had someone to share the time with. What would I do? 2 years ago

upallnightNo longer single

I’m not single anymore, but I can say that especially in the year or so leading up to meeting my current beau, I embraced singledom. If it happens that I end up single again, I will celebrate it. My mantra is to always enjoy my life fully – coupled or uncoupled. 2 years ago

amaniaRiding a bicycle

Lately I write a lot about bicycles. I found that riding my bike helps me to focus on present moment and explore my neighbourhood. I feel happy and full of life. This is my time, I choose where and when to go. Funny things happen and I feel more spontaneous and adventurous. I am pleased with myself, I’m more active recently and spending a lot of time outdoors. 2 years ago


I went shopping with my sister yesterday. We spent some time in a shopping mall. The time passed quickly, we talked a lot and laughted, bought some things for my sister’s baby and my mom (tomorrow is Mother’s Day in Poland). I got inspired by many beautiful things and mentally decided which ones I want to have in my future house. It was so good to exchange opinions with somebody I consider one of my best and most trusted friends. I hope my sister can move here and we can go out more often :) 2 years ago

I enjoy spring and nice weather walking in the parks. It is very calming and works wonderfully on my mind. I am happy I can see beautiful growing plants and animals appearing here and there. Sometimes I take a book with me and just read and today I bought my first ice cream this year and it was tasty :) I love walking and thinking, and I admit I do not feel alone. Yesterday I saw a swan and hens, and today I met a squirrel and a very happy dog :) 2 years ago

upallnightIt's Getting Better

It has been much easier as of late to embrace the wonder of singledom. No snark! I’ve spent a great deal of my life as a singleton, and there is absolutely NOTHING wrong with that. In the meantime, I’ve been focusing on paying attention to my needs – working out, eating healthy, talking to my therapist, going out and dancing like a fool with friends. I’ve also been reading “Communion: The Female Search for Love” by bell hooks and “If the Buddha Dated” by Charlotte Kasl. Both marvelous books – approaches love in a healthy and conscious way. Being single is a gift, and someone who will make a good partner for me will come along when the time is right. 2 years ago

amaniaAlone at home having fun

I was alone at home for a couple of days, with my father in the evenings, but still most of the time it was only me here. It was a wonderful time – I was recovering from the illness and used the time to cure myself and have a lot of fun. I watched movies, played computer games, read books and generally I was able to do whatever I wanted, cooking for myself (and father) some delicious food, cleaning only when I wanted to and doing a lot of other stuff. Though I am glad the family is finally back I am really thrilled at the idea of moving out on my own someday. It will be a nice time I guess, I am never bored when alone :) 2 years ago

amaniaI'm visting my grandmother more often

The fact is I spend more time with my grandma than any other of her grandchildren (and there’s a lot of them). I am glad I spend with her some of my spare time, she’s 87 and no one knows how much longer she will be with us. She’s usually grateful for every visit of a member of a family and I am happy when she shows her love and appreciates our visits. 2 years ago

amaniaYesterday's evening - Friday

I had an enjoyable evening yesterday. I went figure skating with H. and P. and it was fun and later we went clubbing a little and we talked and I felt really good for the whole evening. I am grateful there are people with whom I feel comfortable enough to talk about myself and them and the conversation was never boring. I like both of them, we spent more time in the past and I am glad that I renewed this contact. I admit this was one of my best evenings lately and it’s good I socialized a bit with friends. I was home at 2 am and felt happy and while going home by bus through an empty city I listened to music and enjoyed the ride enormously with a smile on my face. 2 years ago

upallnightSuddenly difficult

So, I have a wonderful new roommate whom I adore. She recently started dating a seemingly wonderful guy, and I am really, truly excited for her. However, being in close proximity to someone experiencing a good relationship has not been easy. So, I really need to revisit this goal and try my best to be content with where I am romantically. 3 years ago
