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.

be a good wife (read all 4 entries…)

Last night DH said I was a good wife because I introduced him to 43 things and he thinks he’d like to join. He said, “See, you are inspiring me to work on myself and my goals. And that makes me a better person.” That was nice.

Then this morning we got into a tiff over the way we were communicating. We need to figure out how to communicate better.


You and every other couple in the world!

We all need to work on communication. It’s a learned (very slowly learned in my case) behavior. Even when we’ve come so far, my spouse and I still need to work on it continuously.

Good to know

we aren’t alone. He went and got a haircut, I took a shower and then we came back to talk and worked it out. He was putting meaning behind things I was saying that wasn’t true. I was being defensive when there was nothing to defend. I also use my hands and act very emphatic and he takes that as me being VERY upset… where I see myself as being passionate. We are learning about each other. It’s good. I say just so long as we don’t let the crap linger around and build up, then we are good : )

Thanks for the support!!


“Don’t let the crap linger around” is the perfect motto.
