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.

I was never really sure if it even was a person I was looking for. However, after having him enter my life, I know he’s what I’ve always been looking for. He’s my person.


There are always so many people around, everywhere. People that you know more or less. But, I’m aware of the fact that hardly anyone actually knows me.
And my mind sometimes play with the thought of having a person that knows everything about, accepts and loves you. Someone you never have to explain anything to, because they understand and respect. Someone to look up to. Someone to be entirely honest with, no more lies, no more pretending. Someone that actually knows you. Every little secret. I suppose I’m somwhat searching for this kind of person and at the same time scared to death to have someone knowing every little detail about myself. What about mystery and safety… I wonder if I will ever come to find my person. I have one, that knows a lot more about me than anyone else. But I’m not really sure about where the two of us are standing in life…


I want to:
