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.

I'm so glad I lagged...

When I started my board so many months ago, I placed large pictures in areas to symbolize different aspects of my life and some of the largest goals in my life. A lot has changed since then, what with the move and all, and so I spent a few hours tonight filling in the middle ground. My board is huge and I feel proud of the placement of my images/words and hope they will flow easily together whenever I focus on the board.

Overall, I’m glad I finally finished this and can’t wait to start seeing my visions come alive. Hopefully I can post a pic soon, too!


10 days left… yikes!


Almost done! Been working on it all evening! Its coming together so much easier than I thought it would. Funny has energy flows…



I’m going to work on this today. I have so many pictures cut out from magazines and so much fun scrapbooking stuff that I can’t wait to go hog wild.

Here’s hoping for clear vision while working on it.


I had a blast wandering around the arts and crafts section of wal-mart last night. We don’t have any arts and crafts stores anywhere nearby so wal-mart it is. Thankfully, the section is huge. =)

I wound up getting a 3-sided project display board. I really felt like I needed a lot of room. I also found all sorts of stickers and paper and I must have bought 5 different magazines.

I can’t wait to get started.
