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.

List 100 Things That Make Me Smile

Almost there.

Today is the day that I find myself on number 68. I see that this normally on average for others takes roughly one day to complete. I see this is not the case for me. I have found myself having a few days or even a few weeks here recently that have been less than ‘smile list’ worthy. Those days or sequence of days are the ones that make me want to start another list entirely titled. “100 things that can possibly go awry and make today suck”. I promise I have not written no such thing, yet. One thing at a time right?

My 100 things

I am still working on it, i’m on number thirty something. I’m writing it all down in a book that I keep with me so that when I experience something I wont forget it by the time I get to some paper. I noticed that I am staying a bit more happy, upbeat and positive because i’m focusing on the good.
