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.

_Belle_ has written 4 entries about this goal


“God isn’t finished with you.” from mom regarding difficult times and insecurities….


“What is done, cannot be undone.” From Mom. She told me it was something her mother used to say. It helps when dealing with the past and shedding regret for some unfortunate choices.


My mom and dad always had a huge garden. As a kid, I hated weeding. Now, I love gardening… although I still don’t like to weed, I am so grateful that my mom (and dad) through their example, taught me to love the earth and how to nurture mother nature.

My mother always told me….

“A weed is just a misplaced flower.” She learned this from her mother.

Things my mother told me. Entry 1.

“Patience, little violet.”

“God doesn’t make junk.”

“Men are like streetcars, there’s always another one coming around the bend.” (She learned this from her mother.)

on snow: “God is shaking out his pillowcase.”

“You will attract more flies with honey than vinegar”
