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.

Record Memories of My Mom (read all 14 entries…)
Messing Up Lyrics to Songs

So, I’ve been missing my mom a lot lately…thinking about her and decided to write entries about her whenever I feel like doing so. This one is about music and singing along with songs with my mom. She would never get the lyrics right…at times, I wonder if she did this on purpose because she knew I was such a stickler for lyrics…I would become irritated when I was very young. I remember singing along with her to the Police’s ‘Every Breath You Take’ and wow, was it all over the place…I remember her adding ‘every cake you bake’ which, ironically, wound up on a Sting album…(after the song Love is the Seventh Wave? on Dream of the Blue Turtles)...Anyway now I remember this and how endearing it is.

for reading it – my mom has been gone now for six and a half years and it is memories like this that help me to smile when I think of her.


I want to:
