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 have great friends. They are always looking out for me; calling to check up on me, offering to help out if I need it, fixing stuff for me, etc. They’re great people.


Just happy to be alive. I have a lot of days when I’m down because I still have no answers as to what is causing my nerve damage. But I’m here. Robert’s grandpa passed away earlier this week after a long and painful fight with cancer. What I’m going through is nothing compared to what he went through, and I have to remember that when I’m feeling down.


Start my new job tomorrow.


Picked up my daughter’s cap and gown yesterday. Only 18 days until she graduates. I’m both excited and sad. My little girl is all grown up.


Sold the jeep. Thought it would be stuck in my yard forever since the damn thing had so many issues and on top of it I lost the keys. But a guy offered to buy it. He came over and pulled the ignition switch out so he could start it and pull it onto the trailer. Gave me my money and took it home with him. My driveway doesn’t look like a used car lot anymore. Now I just need to find a motor for my mustang and get it running again.


I have a new job, which I start next week. I’m excited. Time to move on to bigger better things.


Got a new pickup last night thanks to a friend. When I woke up yesterday morning, I had no clue that I would be driving a new truck by the end of the night.


Natasha finally got her license. She’s so proud of herself.


My daughter started her new job today. She came home really excited. I think she’s gonna like it.


Made my own laundry soap and dishwasher tabs today. Testing the dishwasher tabs now. Will test the laundry soap tomorrow. Hoping they both work because the price is unbeatable and I love to save money wherever I can.

I want to:
