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.

Have succulent, wild moments seems more authentic to who I am.

I've got to go pack my bags now!

Tomorrow I’m leaving the family at home and setting out on the ocean. Mexico, here I come! And Belize, and the Bahamas. Am I excited? Hell yeah!


Today I let a man, a complete stranger to me, give me a foot massage. (Pulp Fiction, anyone?) He put lotion on my calves and rubbed them with firm, strong hands. Then he painted my toenails! He even put me on a throne so I could gaze down at him from above. Okay, so maybe he worked for the salon and maybe I paid him $25. But it was worth it!

Get Wet!

Played in the rain today. Started out with an umbrella but then said to hell with it and threw it on the ground. I picked a flower, stuck it in my little girl’s damp hair and said “You’re beautiful.”

She looked up at me. “Mommy, are you beautiful?”

A pause. “I don’t know.”

“Say yes, Mommy.”

“Okay, yes.”

Cynonymous has gotten 15 cheers on this goal.
