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.

“So, this is Bach singing?”
I have failed in their education.

Start with my own children...

Last night I was singing my children to sleep. As they were taking a long time to fall asleep, I started searching for lullabys that I like, and when I was running out, any songs that mention night or sleep… then I remembered, there was a Hebrew translation of Die Lotusblumme by Schuman, and I tried to recall the words. It’s about a lotus flower that’s in love with the moon (aha! moon – night!). When I was done, my 4.5 years old daughter was looking at me with wide eyes: Mother, may I get out of bed to give you a hug and a kiss? She was filled with the beauty of the song, overflowing with love.

There is so much joy in it!

Many people don’t know that. They think it’s “calm”, if they only listened! It’s exciting and bursting with energy and emotion.
I’m not saying everyone should like it, or try it. I just believe that some people may enjoy it as much as I do, but they don’t know it.

Almog has gotten 23 cheers on this goal.


I want to:
