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 have been gaming a lot lately.

The Return of Fighting Games

I am doing well with this goal so far. I have moved on to fighting games and martial arts games. I love old school gaming and the gaming genres from before the 2000s.


This is getting easy. My goal was to stop playing all video & PC games for a while because I spent too much time with them. Now that I have broken that habit I am trying to play them again, in moderation. :)

So far so good

I used to play very often and had to stop completely. Now I want this to become a habit again. So far so good.


I’ve played a few games already this week.

So far in January

Enjoying PC games & The Sims on console as well…
