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.

Travel to Costa Rica (read all 2 entries…)
I'm booked for April

I’ll be traveling solo; visiting the jungle, volcanoes, and the ocean on both coasts.



don’t forget the part about taking lots of photos for your 43T friends! Oh, this sounds so great

Taking lots of photos

(too many photos) is what I do. Even while hiking down the Zion Narrows last year I took lots of photos, my camera just stopped recording them when it melted inside.


It melted inside?! I’d hate to think what was happening to YOU inside at the time. Extreme photography, a whole new sport!

Inanimate objects break and stay broken

but people heal. I think the camera died due to multiple trips in the Southwest in high temperatures. The engineers at Canon in Japan might not have considered that some people voluntarily spend time in extremely hot places. (I also spent time up to my neck in the Colorado river at 37 degrees while my camera was a few feet a way on the bank in 120 degree heat).

Stephanie is Mr. Dobalena, Mr. Bob Dobalena...


I have always wanted to go to Costa Rica! I even used Costa Rica as a project in my Spanish class. We had to go on a 2 month vacation, and when I look at pictures.. I feel like I’ve already been there sometimes :P
