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.

Gho-s-t Noone lights a candle under the table , make your powers be known.


+ cigarette + jazz on a really cold night.

I dont ask for much.

Simon - isn't ungoogleable.


Oceans and seas, rives and lakes, waterfalls and rain. So, water in general.

I rediscovered a video yesterday, taken by Evie during our Great American Lunacy, showing me dunking my head in the chilly water of Multnomah Creek. That was both soothing and refreshing.

Collectorofcats No matter where I go in the future I'll remember 43 things.

Good music, a wine cooler or irish cream. In this heat some ice cream or greek yogurt.

Back rubs

- heat I sigh in content whenever I wash my hands, turn on the shower, lying in the sun, etc.
- Greek yogurt
- Big, strong, tight hugs
- blueberry green tea
- coffee with hazelnut creme
- good music…classic rock and smooth jazz usually
- a cuddly firm bed
- the way my best friend says my name when I’m getting angry
- the way B plays with my hair when I’m napping
- chocolate!...and chocolate cookies, home made chocolate brownies, chocolate milkshakes….I think you get the point
- good food; home made and Asian typically

I’m a simple kind of person =)

iamevoxus there is freedom in letting go


chocolate/sweet treats
hot baths/showers
tight hugs
to love and be loved and know its the real deal
working out, or the after effects
being outside in nature
the sound of rain

I plan on doing ALL of those over my upcoming 6-day ‘stay’-cation.

Sometimes, it’s eating. I don’t mean binge eating chips or chocolate, but having a good balanced meal. Sometimes edginess is my blood sugar talking.

Yoga is wonderful. The woman on my yoga DVD has the best soothing voice, and during the relaxation part, you go through relaxing each part of your body in a conscious manner, and at the end, just laying there. I can often hardly move after that, I’m so relaxed.

A walk is usually good, or reading (though if I’m agitated I can’t focus on a book).

Going and sitting with my mares. They seem to be able to bring me back down by breathing with me. I wonder if they realize they’re doing it. They literally just put their noses near my face and breathe quietly, and get deeper and deeper. You can’t help but breathe with them, and before you know it, you feel better.
