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.

move (read all 34 entries…)
Moving like a snail today, it's almost 7pm & I haven't even begun to tackle moving

Almost the entire house is in a state of disorganization. Only one bedroom out of 4 is in “clean” condition. The attic is a mess as well as the basement. The office looks like a tornado hit it & the kitchen is piled high with items that need to be sorted through.

Yesterday we trashed a bureau that must have been @ least 50 years old. Put 4 recycling containers filled to max capacity to the curb. And another load of cardboard/paper for recycling too.

I have to go back to the basement where I spent @ least 3 hours last night.

Oh well. Nothing doing but getting it done.


Todd Schoonover will miss all his 43T friends

Go You

May 31st is coming up so quickly. I know moving is no fun. (I still have boxes left to unpack from my move last year.) At least you have a set deadline to target. I know you’ll get it done.

Thank you Todd

I’m sure I’ll get it done. There’s not an option of “Postponement” .


I want to:
