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.

i love me mum

today was not a great day but i am thankful for my mum. I got fired and instead of getting yelled at she just reasures me and tells me about times she’s gotten fired.The woman took time off of work just to cheer me up. I’m very lucky. so todays positive is my mother.


my dad’s girlfriend died this morning. I feel like a jerk for everytime i’ve complained. i can’t imagine what it is like for her kids. And i can’t stop thinking that could have been my mom.


lately i’ve been a little depressed. Not majorly but just a little down with everything.I put this goal up 2 months ago . i really need to stick to it.

positivity is hard as hell!

I’ve been strugling with this one recently. Don’t get me wrong i do have a lot of things to be thankful for.I have overcome a long battle with psychosis after a year of hospitals and treatment facilitys but i can’t help but be reminded of all of the shit going around in this world.My Dad’s serious girlfriend of 2 years was diagnosed with cancer 2 weeks ago.They gave her 3 months to live. It’s horrible especially because this woman is thin athletic and a nonsmoker not to mention a mother of 2 and only 40 years old. So why do these things happen? IT is so sad and this woman is not alone. We all know at least 1 peson dealing with cancer or any other type of physical or mental illness.
So i have decided each time i log in i will list one positive.Who knows it might just go somewhere.
