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.

How to appreciate my parents


Appreciate the Parents

Hi Alli

You are right !..In hindhu mythology there is a saying that, Mother Father, Guru, God, First prefrence is for mother and then father after Guru and then only God. This says the importance of Parents.

Today in the busy life schedules we can see that peoples taking their parents to old age homes, which is one of most cruel thing in a persons life. We have to make a feel in our parents that we are giving care to them. This makes them happy in their old age life.

Nice to see your family ! Good Bless !

Isabel isabelydancer00 is everywhere - you'll see!

Great for you and your parents, Ally!!!

I’mm really happy for you and your parents, Ally!!!
The fantastic thing is that you gained an appreciation for your parents early on. There are somme things that aren’t immediately apparent, so we don’t fully understand.
All along I’ve appreciated his dedication as a single father to mmy younger sister & I. His parental style was ‘authoritorian.’ I spoke up ALOT, when I moved out. You can immagine, going fr the ‘obedient’ to the ‘outspoken’; lots of disagreements; argueing.
I’ve mmanaged to establish a better relationship with mmy Dad. That was only a short timme ago – perhaps 5 years. Two years ago, I mmoved to a different country & the immpression of family & friends has deepened even further. I’mm lucky to have such strong connections in that way.
I love your beamming fammily pic!!! Great to see!

Ally ~ conceivable, measurable, achievable, aligned, worthwhile, desirable.


That is so fantastic to hear you have become so much closer to your Dad. It certainly takes time, but in the end it is definitely worth it and now I cannot even begin to express just how grateful I am to have parents I have. I am so happy for you Isabel, and I hope the relationship you have with him continues to go well. Much love x

Ally ~ has gotten 38 cheers on this entry.
