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.

a never ending project

My brother’s girlfriend said she is going to work on this while I’m on vacation! :)

It’s going to be her Christmas present to me!!!!

slowly but surely

I’ve gotten rid of a few things. My daughter went through her barbies and decided which to keep for her future daughters and stored them in bags in the laundry room. I bought totes for them today. They will be stored in the attic. That will be a big help.


didn’t happen

the penny slots were calling my name at the casino

maybe today…..


Its rainy today so I think I’ll stay home. Sounds like a good day to work on this goal :)


I have several things in the laundry room that I want to put in the yard sale.

The sale is Saturday so I need to get through the laundry room Friday.


my friend has been working on the laundry room every time he comes over. Its looking much better :)


I didn’t accomplish this by my deadline, but I’m okay with that. I was sick for almost 3 weeks with bronchitis.

It will get done. We straightened a few things and we were able to move the litter box in there.


The whole family is spending the day cleaning tomorrow (the kids are NOT happy). This will be my project.

Ready to get this done!
