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.

Why must we live like this.

I am 18 years old living in Canada. The system and economy are looked upon as a mandatory practice that everyone partakes in no questions asked. I want to live my life where i dont have work all the time so i can maintain my home,food, spouse, family and i can eperiance life to its fullest. I dont care about owning a big house or a fast car. I care about playing in the river and laying in the sun with not a care in the world.
I want to spend my life living and not live my life spending, dont you?

I feel that if i live my life conforming to societies expectations that i will not be as happy as i could be living a simplier more care free life.

I want to know how. There is a way. Someone just needs to found it.

The thing about finding it though is that the person that has found it is probably so content with themselves and their life that they wont be blogging about it on the internet or telling loads of people.

Its good to know others out there have the same thoughts as me though. that makes me feel a little better.


email me, Rat, at if you want to discuss
