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.

House Cleaner

I have hired a house cleaner! Does this count? I’m still not happy with my part so I’m keeping this on the list

The Main Part

I’ve been doing better with the main part of the house. The bedrooms are a complete Tornado though.


I have people coming to my house every Friday. I’m hoping this will get me in the routine of picking up after myself so I don’t have to do a big clean up Thursday night.

Back Slide

I had a back slide when we had a power outage. It was so dark for days I couldn’t see to put anything away! My house quickly became a mess! I’m actually taking a break now from trying to get it straightened back up again. I attempted this earlier in the week. I hope I can finish this tonight so I can get back on track with this goal.

Still Going

I’m still doing pretty well at this. Maybe if I can keep it up till Christmas I will mark this off of my list!

Been A Week

It’s been a week and the house is still looking good! Knock On Wood!


I am finally unpacked from my move and the house is neat for the company this weekend. So…..I’m going to try to keep it going. We’ll see how it works!


I got in a good habit of keeping things clean when I was selling my house. I would like to keep it up but it’s really hard when I’m not unpacked (and being lazy about it) and situated in the new house yet. I’m afraid by the time I’m settled in here I will have gotten out of the good habits I got into!


I want to:
