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 felt pretty good about the painting performance that happened this past weekend…painting to cello was really interesting

the painting looked great
when i get an image i will post it


i feel pretty confident these days, i leave the house in the morning and jump on my bike and pedal on into work and that takes a lot of confidence and awareness also

the traffic can be hairy from time to time but i hold my ground

also i am feeling really confident about my art these days it helps that people are interested


means being yourself and taking ownership of situations and interactions

this has worked for me but sometimes i retreat into my shell
but alas i dont get as much out of an interaction being in this shell of mine

doodle13 has gotten 4 cheers on this goal.


I want to:
