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.

Grieve my cat who has passed away
Thomas has left our lives

T’knight wanted to write this under one of his entries, but he was having computer problems so I offered to help.

Plus, I wanted this to be a separate goal, as this once-special cat deserves as much.

Here is the entry that he wrote for us:


He was solemn.

He was a lovely cat.

He talked with many syla-la-buls if you get my drift.



He was as strong as an ox.

All but for a thread….

From a carpet that he did shred.

Apparently he wrapped it around his tongue…

Antibiotics and surgery.

And now he is dead.

So please hug your pets, whomever and wherever they may be…

Do it now while you can.

I said good bye less than an hour before he died.

Love them while you can.

Farewell my friend.


tknight is t'done t'day

So we grieve.

And remember the good.

And that he had three great years…

And that we miss him.

Awww,I’m really sorry about your kitty… I can tell this kitty was very loved….
