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.

Each morning, set my intentions for the day (read all 66 entries…)
Good to be back

It’s been a long time since I’ve been on 43T, and it feels good to be back.

Even when I was away I wondered about how everyone was doing. This was the first online community that I joined. And the support from everyone is amazing!

This is still one of the most positive places on the internet.

For the past year, I’ve been working on myself. Changing my outlook and my attitude. I went from someone who worried incessantly to someone who looks forward to new opportunities [and the occassional wayward glance at things that bother me]. This is a major shift in my way of being.

I come from a family of worriers. So, for me to turn this around took a major inner overhaul, and a seriously honest look at myself. Some of it was exciting, some painful, and sometimes it was just boring.

It was all worth it. To be free of the chronic negative inner talk, to make peace with my inner critic, is astoundingly wonderful.

While I was doing this, I freelanced as a copywriter and grew passionate about writing and being purposeful in general. I love the feeling of accomplishing something. Setting out a goal for myself and then taking one step then another to reaching it.

I’ve also taken up salsa dancing! It’s a lot of fun.

My intention for today is to have a fantastic day. I want to reconnect with this all my friends here on 43T, and I want to connect more with the people I see at my gym and in my neighbourhood.

I’ll talk to you soon!


Living In God's Exquisite, Miraculous Sufficiency 2014 is My Year to FLOURISH! Thank you, Heavenly Papa!


It’s good to see you back, T. I was wondering about you not too long ago. I came back last Fall. It’s much calmer and smaller of a place for me now and it works for me.

Welcome back! Glad you found me.

Good to see you back here, too.

I feel great being back after a year long sebatical. I feel like a new, reawakened person, and I’m rearing to go.

Have a fabulous day!

Great goal

Just wanted to say I really like the way you’ve framed this goal. There are similar goals related to “to do” lists and “prioritizing one’s time.” But I am fond of focusing on intention because I think it digs deeper into what’s behind the things we choose to do! So this goal is a wonderful improvement on the average “to do” list—good thinking!

Rereading this entry I realized that I’ve accomplished my intention of getting to know other 43Thing’ers better.

I added this goal to help me focus deeper on what I want, beyond the day to day and into what truly brings me joy.

I like

this goal of yours too. It won’t surprise me if I join you in at some point. In the interim it’s uplifting and inspiring hearing of your intentions – and of how some of them have manifested :)

Tristan has gotten 4 cheers on this entry.


I want to:
