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.

clean my room (read all 11 entries…)
Reading back on these entries I've done a lot!

I’m very proud of myself for everything that I’ve done. A before picture wouldn’t have done anything justice because you wouldn’t have been able to see the clutter tucked away in drawers, closets, in boxes, and under the bed. It’s things that I’ve always had that I’ve forgotten about. When I think about it, my room is now very livable or will be after some last steps.

Since I’ve been home, I moved all of the wedding stuff into the living room. I put the moving boxes in my closet. I plan to pack what I can in them, then move them to another room, so I can put art supplies in the closet. Looking around my room now, the only clutter I see are the art supplies boxes and boxes of things I am moving. Since I have to live here for 3 more weeks, I’m going to put the boxes up in a room no one uses much.

These are the main things I need to do. I think I’ll be able to mark this done soon, because anything else unseen I can make into smaller goals! These goals could be things like “Organize my scrapbook stuff” and “Pack for Ohio” and my current goal “Organize and reduce my art supplies.” I’m very proud of myself. I know that many people have moved in their lifetime and gotten rid of things, but this is my first time to do this in 22 years so that many years worth of stuff is a lot to handle. I’ve done well :)



I want to:
