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.

“losing vision, lost her sight.
it is a feeling, once thought is manifest;
touch, it’s tangible.
pain is no more real,
unless real is the person to witness strain.
it is truth though,
that once life is shared,
it seeks a being from which sharing comes.
and when sharing does not knock;
to see, to feel,
means all the less.”

“the silence is more than the everything we cannot articulate.
in silence, the unimaginable dream takes flight.”

[my art is words… sharing them makes me uncomfortably vulnerable.]


sometimes i mistake some of my words for words from the books i have read. because of this i believe my words could be in books.

i think belief in your ability to create is half of the equation to accomplishing this.
i do believe, today.


i love art.
but, something is always holding me back.
it’s a shame my heart craves expression through such a subjective form. i suppose security of self comes before expression can feel safe.

formulating ideas, expressing ideas, always with new ideas…
i wont stop myself forever.

foralltime has gotten 17 cheers on this goal.


I want to:
