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.

Uh Oh!

I have returned to one hour of meditation each morning and this was a huge message that came out of my meditation. Shut up! Let others live their own lives and I need to work on mine. The image that came to my mind was, if my yard is a mess and I keep telling people (daughter, love, sons, friends) how to clean up their yard, I am a fool.

Shutting up now. Printing my list and getting busy.


This is not as hard as it used to be. I can breathe through things and choose kindness. I don’t give up what I have to say, IF it is a mature thing to do. I am so much more patient and kind. I still do the right thing, even if I am hurt and want to lash out.

I used loving words, an act of faith.

Holy God in heaven, I ache, and I did the right thing. It was important to be brave and yield.

The last few days

I’m trying really hard to show how much I love someone and not taking their stressed mood personally. It’s not as hard as it used to be. Deep Breath!

PeaceHopeLife has gotten 23 cheers on this goal.


I want to:
