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.

A partnership...

based on nearly 5 years of dating, knowledge and intimacy.
We share the same values in the most part.
We have great respect and love.
We believe in the power of individuality and the strength of togetherness.
We don’t degrade each other should a friendship with others happen.
If someone wants to watch a program on TV in our house, we will actually allow them to operate it themselves.
Some things we consider to be so trivial.
And yet, others mean the world to us.
The path will be walked hand in hand.
Communication, understanding and caring will be used.


believe in the power of greatness, talent and achievement…
Whether it be appreciated or rewarded with recognition…

There are so many examples to choose from…
I’ll post one from a somewhat unknown Canadian group
Perhaps the greatest Prog Rock group of all time…

Saga Images at Twilight

There he sits
Drawing images on the causeway
With small bits of chalk
He sketches all the lost days
And the rain keeps coming down
Wipes them from the ground
And the rain keeps coming down
Watching his life drown
Dashing past
The people circle around him
With a laugh
A bottle must have drowned him
And the rain keeps coming down
Wipes them from the ground
And the rain keeps coming down
Change his smiles to frowns
None remain
Not the friends or possessions
Who’s to blame
With all those good intentions
One picture did remain
A face that had his name
A body lies, no pain
Under blankets of warm rain


needs a certain skill…

A bit of confidence…

And the ability to try…

Without the desire to try…a miracle might never happen…

How soon or how long...

Until Passion Rules The Game Again?

I hope I........

always can remember just how amazing the possibilities can be that present themselves…..

For my special friend A...........

Believing in the possibilities is just that…believing…or hoping…That’s what I do…hope…for the best…just as this song
...Somewhat melancholy sounds of hope and observations…everything is hoped for…and if you watch…much is illusion…like many things in our own lives…we will find joy and happiness where we can…everything will not be yours that you desire…but some things will be…there is happiness and joy in many things…if we will let ourselves find them…you have only to perceive differently sometimes…I can only hope…and see what I receive…it’s all anyone can ever do…Trying to be positive allows me to avoid the pitfall of this
....this is how I have felt much in the distant…and recent past…I don’t want to feel this way…but I am on the threshold of these feelings at times…minutes…seconds…hours…every day…

My choice is an easy one…try to sweep the negative away…and hopefully succeed…

I seem to be so uplifted all of the sudden........................

It’s quite stimulating actually…

My GAWD!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

The fact that I can even have this goal.......

Is one of the amazing possibilities to believe in…;-)...
