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.

list three things every day that made me happy (read all 2868 entries…)

1. Harlan’s help folding sheets resulted in a broken ceiling fan, but at least he tried.

2. Seeing the grandkids.

3. Seeing the grandkids’ parental units. I really like Connie and her husband. Awesome people.


Sessygail Will be forever grateful for 43Things.

A broken ceiling fan?

Folding sheets? Really? That must have been fun to watch! :)

ceiling fans

It was a surprise to say the least. He was having a difficult time finding corners of the fitted sheet and raised an arm too high. The blade broke off and came at me. I was too surprised to duck, but no injuries. He didn’t even realize it had broken till I handed him the blade. lol

Sessygail Will be forever grateful for 43Things.

Oh, my!

Glad no one was hurt! :)


nope, no one hurt. I never would have thought about it happening till it did. freak accident? Or something conspiring for me to get a new ceiling fan?

I need to

vault my bedroom ceiling as hitting my bedroom ceiling fan happens anytime I get out of bed and stretch with my arms straight up in the air. Not so freaky of an accident; so you are supposed to get a new ceiling fan. Maybe something whimsical. I am glad there were not injuries.
