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.

just for today

I’m getting off work around 7 – 7:30pm. I want to do something fun, interesting, and totally relaxes me before going to sleep tonight… What could it be? Hm….

no procrastination

If there’s something that needs to be done, or if there’s something I want to do, get it done asap. Don’t wait till tomorrow.


went to a B&B across from a 100 acre farm last weekend, and then visited the national park. wish i had taken the camera with me then there would be photos to share. going to a symphony this weekend with a blind date :)

workout helps :)

The 30 minutes a day workout helped. I now have much more energy after a week. I can do something fun this weekend, am going to play tourist for a day, then go spend a day at a B&B to relax and remember all the good things in life :)

todo for today

I’ve got to feel good and be in good health first to live a full life. So, I’m going to work out today after work. My heart, liver, kidney, brain will all thank me for that.

learning to live a life

I’ve been spending the first 35 years of life building up things- career, relationships. I’ve always been a worrier, always anxious about the future, about what to do about this and that. Now I realize these worries are thieves. They are stealing my precious life. I want to let them go and reclaim my precious moments. The challenge is – how do I do that when worrying is so ingrained in my brain. Well, I’ve got to start somewhere, maybe just for today, I can try to do something that makes my heart happy.

Morning Song has gotten 19 cheers on this goal.
