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.

Caring Heart

I am liking my caring heart. My friend’s grandpa passed away last week. I met him once and I really enjoyed meeting him… so I sent my friend and her family an email about how their grandpa touched my life… my email was read at his eulogy. When you care, you touch people’s life’s

Me time

I like that I still find the time for… ‘me time’
Everyone needs it.

What’s not to like

Many times I will sit and think, and come up empty handed with this goal. But today I like me. I like what I stand for, I like how I treat others, and I like who I want to become. I might not be the prettiest, but being pretty doesn’t tell people that I am kind. I might not be the smartest, but I am always trying to learn new things. I like the person I am today, all of me…. who would have thought that I would ever wright those words?


I like that I am learning how to be silly.


I like that I think of others and care how they feel.


Today I like my laugh, which has recently been called… you have an addictive laugh


I like that I always try to do things that will not hurt someone’s feelings. But I do realize sometimes, just sometimes no matter what you do, someone will be hurt.

Do anything

I like that I would do anything for a friend.
But I wonder sometimes, if I know how to say no.

Something I like…. And about myself….

I’ll tell you how it is, but not in a way that will hurt your feelings.


I like that I wear my heart on my sleeve, you’ll always know where I stand on my feelings.
