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.

List all things I did well today!


ellydee63 has written 3 entries about this goal


-ate breakfast (bowl of frosted flakes-always makes me feel 10 years younger at least while eating it!)
-went to work on time (work on a saturday ick!)
-reread a book from start to finish (flowers for algernon-one of my favs)
-filled up gas tank (3rd time this week-I drive too much!)
-deposited pay check at bank (been meaning to do it all week
-ate dinner at korean restaurant (had spicy tofu soup-yum!)

so not a bad day… (yet none of the above include “started or working on or finished my homework due Monday” so I actually feel pretty bummed about my “wasted, unproductive” Saturday… oh well, I need to focus on the positive right?)


today I…

-woke up a little late but still made it to class on time (and ate breakfast-on the go in the car)

-bought the book I need to read for tomorrow’s class so I can do the reading tonight (which I already ordered it online but it’s still in transit so I’ll just return the book I bought today when it arrives)

-ate a really good dinner at Pasta Pomodoro with my little brother

-took a much needed nap once I got home and now I’m ready to actually do the reading that I bought the book for (oh homework how I hate you at times!)

now to get to work.

thanks for inviting me!

what I did well today:

-I did wake up on time AND I ate breakfast (which I usually over sleep and don’t have time for it)

-also… I went to all of my classes on time (I’m a full time student but I drive a 45-75minutes commute to and from school 5 days a week)

-I didn’t fall asleep during my afternoon classes (though I thought about it)

-and hopefully I will get some reading for Thursday’s classes done tonight!

(this was a bit challenging because I’m usually more negative with myself!)


I want to:
