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.

RkTkFx Happy New Year!

be a good father
This is a need, not a want

I am disconnected from my kids. They are loving and sweet, but I am always trying to find “me” time, to the point that I push them away. I’m foolish for that, and I’m going to work on being better. How? I’m not sure just yet, but I’m looking for an answer, and I’m sure I’ll find it.


Speaking with all my heart, I wish you find the way to enjoy your kids. They are heaven’s gifts to us and the time you spend with them is priceless!

I find my husband at times getting disconnected from our son too and seeking some “me” time or “alone” time. However, the funny thing is, when he gets too stressed, he will just want to spend some time with our baby and do all the silly and fun activities with him. It not only cheers him up and relives his stress level, he also gets a boost of energy and gets high =D

Even a simple trip to McDonald’s to get ice-cream turns out to be so much fun and one filled with joy and laughter.

RkTkFx has gotten 9 cheers on this entry.


I want to:
