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.

it’s ridiculous, but tragic circumstances made me accomplish this goal tonight. It was awful, but one of my former coworkers and his wife were hit this morning in a hit-and-run accident while they were taking their morning walk. (He survived and she didn’t…and they are in their 50s with an adult child, so please pray for the family.) The call I needed to make was to another former co-worker at that same company to finish out this goal. So, I had to find out what she knew…and I was able to update her on everything since we talked.

Just one more left...

and I’ve decided that I’ll do this by Sept. 8.

One more down...

and two to go. :)

One more down...

4 to go! Actually, I need to add another to this list now.

One phone call made tonight.

5 more to go. :)


you can’t keep me off the telephone, but this year has been different for me. I haven’t kept in touch with people as well as I should have. I’ve contacted two people of several I need to talk to. I can’t believe that there are some people I haven’t talked to all year long!

Deni H has gotten 5 cheers on this goal.


I want to:
