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.

Only half there in one year

I have changed significantly over the last year, I care about myself, I am far more positive in my actions and outlook, I have lost 30 of the 100 pounds I intended to lose, I ask for the things I need in my relationships, I go to social events regularly and I am taking my education more seriously.

There is still a lot of progress to be made. I would like to have a positive outlook at least 75% of the time. I want to increase my level of exercise so the weight comes off more easily. I want to INSIST upon getting the things I need out of my relationships, as opposed to just asking for them. I want my education to be meaningful to me.

slow progress

I can see all the wonderful possibilities in my life and I’m so ready for this. It seems I get distracted by the smaller problems, like how do I pay this and why did this happen. Those things are not the important part. If you want the change bad enough, if you envision it clearly the how will take care of itself. Why is a question that usually leaves me stuck in the past instead of focused on the present.

doing very well

I’ve been able to decide on what responsibilities I CAN handle instead of trying to take on everything at once, this was a big problem in my old life. I am doing better in school and have even gotten my photography into a gallery. There are still things to be worked on but overall this has been encouraging

I want to:
