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.

CREATE 1 NEW POSITIVE HABIT EACH MONTH IN 2012!!! (read all 36 entries…)

Doing well with my goal to give God the first fruits of my day and the last moments of my night. Basically what this means to me is that I no longer roll off the computer and collapse into my bed, ha ha. I take time to unwind and in the morning I no longer leap into cyberspace. Instead, I try to always have a thought provoking book picked out the night before and I sit there in my favorite chair and begin my day with prayer and a little time for reading. It was actually hard initially which sort of shocked me. The first day I said to my self, “Wow, I am completely addicted to this stupid computer!” So needless to say, I am very glad to have made this necessary change in my life- I may still spend more time on the computer than I’d like but it’s a BIG improvement. Now instead of looking forward to see what’s going on here, I am excited to pick up where I left off in my reading! I enjoy the silence of my new morning routine and it just feels all around, like a healthier start to my day :) Let me know how your new habit is going!!! I’d love to hear from you…


TrueFreedom has gotten 5 cheers on this entry.


I want to:
