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.

Been there

Well, I’ve been going for a month straight now. My son is enjoying the youth group too. Feeling good.

Needed a push

I’ve been trying to get moving to do this the last few weeks, but just haven’t gotten up to do it. Then God presented me with an opportunity to spark my spirit. My 13-year-old son has always fought against going to church with me since he was little (he associated it with church services that his grandparents attend that are a bit intense for him), but he showed interest in attending a swim party to kick-off this year’s youth ministry program. So, the whole family went, and while the kids worked together and had fun, I had the chance to re-acquaint myself with our reverend and his wife, and with other church members there. I was reminded how important the church is to me and how good I feel being with my community of faith. I can’t wait to get to church next week, and to begin volunteering with youth ministry, which is what I used to involve myself in a couple of years ago before I dropped off. I love the way things work. Praise God!


I want to:
