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.

aswedishlime I'm on 43Refugees and DayZeroProject!

Daily: Reflect on at least 5 things for which I'm grateful (Happiness Manifesto #2) (read all 1050 entries…)

The stress is starting to mount, and I just don’t feel totally like myself…

I’m reaching for gratitude today.

1. I am grateful for J. He’s been so accommodating and so nice. I love that we can support each other and be a blessing in each other’ lives.
2. I am grateful for long phone chats with friends lately. It’s been nice to hear what others are up to, not the blather in my head. ;)
3. I am grateful I cut through my avoidance of figuring out the homeowners insurance. I had a nice chat with an independent broker who explained a lot of the ins and outs of how insurers land on their numbers. I am moving forward in that direction.
4. I am grateful for my sister. She should be coming in a week.
5. I am grateful for J’s cooking. He made chickpea fritters, sauteed chard, and used up prime rib we had received from my dad from the Omaha Steak Company at Christmas. So tasty.
6. I am grateful for ice cream. Just a small bowl after dinner felt like a really nice treat.


grandmonster I will miss 43T & all the people. Find me on Pop Clogs as Grandmonster


I’m grateful some days when I can actually find something for which to be grateful. (;~)

I’m generally a positive person as are most of the people who have this or another similar goal and some days it is tough to get out my head long enough to realise that I have much to show appreciation to. It’s good to know that you also have to stretch some days.
