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.

Faith in myself

“As far as creative powers go, I have them and I know it. All I need now is faith in myself… only from there can a faith truly dilate and expand to ‘mankind.’ I must change my life, now.”

{Jack Kerouac, written in April 1943 from the Naval Hospital at Bethesda, MD}

Sam, I am.

Sam Cooke knows what’s up. But why isn’t there a more contemporary version of this song? Yeah I’m looking at you, Adele.



Let your light shine.



“It takes courgae to grow up and become who you truly are.”—E. E. Cummings

You've got to feel it from within....

SHINE from the inside, and it’ll have no place to go but OUT.

some life advice



“Always be a first rate version of yourself, instead of a second rate version of somebody else.” {Judy Garland}


“Today you are you. That’s truer than true. There’s no one alive that’s you-er than you.”

{Dr. Seuss}
