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.

Stop dreaming so much


Italygirl has written 3 entries about this goal


Well, I consider this finished because I really don’t have time to dream. And the fact that I’m having a hard time paying for school and moving out in the fall is reality is hitting me hard and I’m realizing that not all dreams come true, and I’m simply setting myself up for disappointment by dreaming so much.


Well, I think for the most part I have done this…mostly because I don’t have time… but I do still tend to dream from time to time… I mean, I still believe I’m going to win the lottery in the near future… and I haven’t even bought a lotto ticket in months… hmmm…

I dream my life away

I dream. That’s what I do. I dream my life away… and it’s got to stop. I can’t keep thinking and hoping my life will be one way and having it always turn out another. It’s not healthy. And it’s not making me happy.


I want to:
