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.

If we can just remember to do that it would make life easier for everyone. I have to be the catalyst, I can’t just wait around for it to happen.


For 7 months now we’ve been living with his Mom and it certainly complicates this goal but at the same time we’ve never been more on the same page then we are where this situation is concerned. We are both supporting each other as best we can, it is all kinds of stressful.

A little lost

Somewhere along the way we’ve lost a lot of things, they’ve become buried but not so deep they can’t be found again. I know what I need to do differently and the only place I can really start is with myself. We “talked” tonight and that is something, I don’t think the conversation could have been more honest or more overdue. I’m tired.
