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.

What does it actually mean?!?

When i put this “goal” that i wanted to grow up i guess the saying goes good things come to those who wait and i’ve learned to be patient when it comes to this and i will get what i want—> to be treated like an adult and to act like one, if i’ve got one down shouldn’t the other follow? Well i’ve been told i act older than my age (im 19) but some people just dont treat me like an adult will it take time? well to answer that i guess only time will tell?! Ironic or what??

Growing Up!

Im 18 and i dont want to be! Everyone says you don’t want to grow up stay a child forever! Well guess what i’m not Peter Pan the opposite actually i want to grow up and stop acting childish and grow up have a life, a family all the rest can’t i have that now? why not and what is the important point in growing if you just want to be older and more mature!? Who has the right to slow down that process? Him upstairs its so un-fair.


I want to:
