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.

im learning

i have found a book called My Job Went to India—And All I Got Was This Lousy Book by Chad Fowler.

It is helpful. I am breaking down my goals into smaller steps now and trying to accomplish at least one “hit” a day [as suggested in the book].



So how are those hits coming?

5 days later, anything to share? If not, why not? Go go go! :)


This site has tips on setting good goals for yourself

It also has tips on many other things… You may want to check it out :)

Thanks muchly!

Thanks for the weblink. I have it bookmarked and I will be checking it out thoroughly.

What I am doing is not working very well. I am only able to discipline myself when I am extremely interested in something.

So I have to try something different.
