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.

Dreams of Grandeur

Wouldn’t it be nice if the perfect TV image of “FRIENDS” could be true in everyone’s life? Where each one of us were a part of a core group of six friends who were always there for you no matter what was going on!


Dandy is happy that I have not smoked a cigarette in 21 days!! YAY!!! :-)


Yes, the ideal tv friend relations would be great and I am sure it does exist for some people. For me not so much. But maybe we can start the ideal online friendship of 6 core people that are always there for each other?

Not a bad Idea!

You know there are so many amazing stories that we hear or see in movies, and me with an over-active imagination right away started dreaming of how amazing it would be if that worked and then one day the six of us met at our own little coffee shop and claimed the couch as ours, and just talked the afternoon away! Wouldn’t that be priceless?

A Family of friends :) :)

Hi ! I am really proud to say that I have something similar to the friendship that you see on friends and reunion with the people that I went to college with… We love each other so so much ! It is a group of friends with tons of humour and thousands of stories, past romances… etc. We are 8 including me and we get together at least once a week. And this may sound strange though, because I still feel like somehow I still need more people in my life… does it sound weird ??? I wish I could have at least two other groups of friends like the one I have right now

Sometimes I just wish that people would stay single longer and keep hanging out with friends and having fun together, dont you?
