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.

Still Failing Miserably

I’m watching a lot less TV now, but I’m still failing miserably. My PVR won’t work anymore after Comcast went all-digital. The PVR had been my crutch (I record the programs I want to watch and only watch them when I have the time), but now I’ve I’m back to square one.


tasha crowder Holla!


Watch t.v while you work out. That would make it productive. I do a workout dvd that I’m familiar with on one screen while watching a netflix movie or show on another. I also watch tv while I read over notes for class. This way, I don’t feel a need to take breaks, the emotional responses I have strengthen my memory of the subject, and I don’t feel fatigued after hours of memorizing and testing myself in a subject. If you like it so much, make sure it suits your purpose. That way you don’t feel guilty. I find that if I don’t entertain myself, I feel cheated-especially if I’m doing something that’s a bit dry-like the same old workout video and the same old notes.


I want to:
