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.

Convince parents to get a puppy


Mikay67 has written 1 entry about this goal


My parents will never be convinced to adopt a puppy. I’ve been doing lots of research about dogs. Like never buy dog/dog food from pet stores because your supporting puppy mills. I taken care of my Uncle’s dogs when he was away for two days. I stayed at his house with my brother to take care of them. And trust me, the dogs were aggressive. There were like 5 Doberman Pinschers. But I looked online to ger rid of the dogs jumping and the biting habit, and luckily me and my brother got rid of the habits of 2 of the dogs. We couldnt train the other 3 dogs but they made a little progress. So I asked my parents If we can adopt a dog but they still said NO! My parents always think all dogs are huge and aggresive. I keep telling them there are always small dogs. One day when I asked my mom if she can take me to the pet store and play with the puppies (i know crazy huh? but there wasnt a shelter that lets you play with the dogs close to us unless you adopt them) and my mom said there was a lot of cute puppies and she finally agreed a little. I cant convince her completely yet. So any ideas so i can convince them??


I want to:
