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.

Laree Alexander is thinking about how I can make my room into a warm, sanctuary..

Complete "The Artist's Way"
Something I've always wanted..

I’ve skipped and jumped through the book a few times, but haven’t truly sat down to read it cover to cover and to follow it through and through. I feel like it’s time. I’ve been in a sort of creative block, only doing artwork for others and when I’m paid, and that has to end.

What I truly want is to be paid to do the art that I (ME ME ME) want to do!! the art that makes my heart soar, not yours! I think the more I create my art, the more I can sell and be commissioned to make “MY” art.

I think Im going to start this journey this weekend.. we’ll see where it leads and I’ll update this entry as I go along! <3


2 days in and Im feeling good about it! :) Started my journal and am going to work on one of the tasks tonight at Art night! Having a goal really does give you inspiration and motivation, it just makes me want to set more of them! :)


3 weeks in and I love it! All my creative blocks have come down, and I’ve been producing art like crazy!! I haven’t kept up with the morning pages like I should be, but Im just trying not to guilt myself over it, push on through, and complete all the tasks and projects!

Here is some of the work ive done lately:
