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.

Mercedes thanks for all the support 43things xoxox

get a new car (read all 7 entries…)
Honda Accord

My dad wants to give me his Honda Accord so he can get something that works better in the snow. It’s such a generous gift, can I accept it? Will I feel bad for accepting it? I am of the persuasion that a person should accept loving gifts that are offered to them, but I’m having a hard time working through this one.

It’s a great car. Beautiful. Steel gray. Two door. Leather. A/C and great heated seats. I really would love it. I love driving it. It is lightyears nicer than my current vehicle which is over 13 years old.

I can’t decide what to do.


If I'm not too late and if you don't want it

I’ll take it.

I wouldn’t want your dad’s feelings to be hurt.

Nothing wrong with accepting a gift out of love.


I want to:
