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.

I loved someone and he hurt me and then he died

I want to talk to him. I’m afraid I won’t get to hear what I want or he won’t come through at all. I’d love to just have a conversation with him like we used to. I found myself trying to replicate one of our conversations with someone else the other night. I realized what I was doing almost immediately. It wasn’t the same, then I was sad and kept that to myself. Grieving is hard especially when I still feel angry with him.

I might have a referral

A friend of mine saw a medium recently. She lost her mom in a car accident and had a very comforting experience. I think I will do it although it may not be as comforting to me because my situation is a little different.

connect with someone who has passed

I’d like to try to connect with someone that passed away 6 months ago. I loved this person dearly and miss him. I am also angry about some things and don’t have closure. I think I need to heal more before trying a medium because I don’t think I could handle being disappointed.
