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.

Gypsy is not really around much anymore...

live passionately (read all 10 entries…)
This is the life... aaahhhh

I love being on long service leave!

I’ve had a productive day (compared to my languid day yesterday!) and now it’s 4.45pm on a Wednesday arvo and I’m sitting here with my laptop, a bottle of Omni Blue (champers) and some soft, creamy Brie with cracked pepper water crackers looking at my freshly cleaned fish bowl (Kevin and Brian say hi!) and listening to the radio – which I hardly ever have time to listen to! I am SO blessed!

Plus, my man’s coming over after work tonight, so I get to fall asleep in his arms, listening to his steady breathing and feeling the warmth of his body against mine. Aaahhhh….


JulieJordanScott is on a respite from creating goals though she continues to reach them

Hi Kevin and Brian!~

Such cool names for a couple fish… LOL.

Gypsy is not really around much anymore...


But it gets worse… they have personas too. Kevin is an effeminate accountant who wears big, thicks glasses and stutters a lot and Brian used to be truck driver, but has now discovered his passion and works as a drag-fish at night… his stage name is Princess. No… I’m not on drugs… or drunk. I’m just kinda strange…


Gypsy has gotten 1 cheer on this entry.


I want to:
