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.

pilates !

I enjoyed the class. It was very relaxing, and reminded me of yoga. Takes a lot of control, but was really nice since there were only 2 students.


i’d like to learn how to really visualize my future. i think it would be very helpful in having direction for my life and making better plans to get me there.

exercise and independence

i tried a cardio sculpting class, very challenging and i learned more about jamaica and trinidad’s 50th anniversary both coming up in august of this year and where people saw the countries going and the potential they both have.

Feb 9 linguistic anthropologist lecture

I learned about communication in a town hall meeting between constituents and speaker. It was interesting to see discourse analyzed as well as gestures.


Don’t know what i want to do for this week… Any ideas, anyone??

Ice skating

Was really fun. At the beginning i was so proud of myself for only falling once. But by the second hour i fell around 5 or 6 more times. I wish i had a camera to capture the falls, they were spectacular!! This is something i will do again.


tomorrow i’m going ice skating!! i’m sure i’ll fall many times before i get it.:)


This gives me an opportunity to do what i love to do-learn!!
I just have to see what new things i should try…
