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.

nailing this

i may not be as bold as Man Repeller but i’ve gotten pretty comfortable expressing my own style. It will be an on-going exercise but i think its safe to say, i’ve got this one, B.

got it

i’ve really spread my wings with this one, though not as often as i’d like. for a while i was doing a killer job day-to-day but now that the weather is getting chillier i’m less inclined to cute/stylish/fashionable and more to “cold homeless woman wearing 5 layers” with my hair in a ponytail.
i did pull out a pretty killer combo for a posh party recently…


in the winter this is pretty hard since i hate being cold and usually wrap myself in as many lumpy layers as possible, but a friend of mine has inspired me to try a little harder on this.

Let’s see how this winter goes…

got ma hair did

maybe this is the anti-thesis of my goal, but 2 months ago I chopped off my hair cos I was having personal problems but it totally worked. Everyone who saw it complimented me and even the crotchetty cow in the office told me I looked more mature and adult. I love it and rather than tying my hair back in a pony tail all the time, I actually do things with it!


I play darts and the last few weeks I’ve been showing up in “normal clothes” as my captain calls them – jeans and t-shirts or tank tops. I guess I’m doing a good job on this if people get suprised to see me in “normal clothes”... oh, and for darts yesterday I wore a lime green dress and my hair up and retro

its spring

the clothes are getting smaller and fewer and I look like crap. I definately need a hair cut, maybe color, bangs might be nice….

ktcreole has gotten 3 cheers on this goal.


I want to:
