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.

getting a little better

No, I’m getting MUCH better! TODAY four people almost killed me with their lack of DRIVING skills, and did I yell anything that resembled a curse word? NOPE! Not once!! I’M SO PROUD OF MYSELF. I feel very good about my progress. I’m trying to be much more positive, and I think that is helping with this whole cursing shindig.

Stupid drivers-it is all their fault

This is so not working. I thought that the majority of my potty mouth moments occured while in traffic, well i discovered how wrong i while monitoring it these past few months. I don’t think I’ve gotten any better. That kinda sucks, Im gonna work harder so that i wont be so quick to scream F—you at the random people who cut me off everyday. I hate LA.

freakin drivers man

i swear this is so hard. I’ve been really trying to cut back rather than just stopping all together. But when some bright LA driver cuts me off I sorta kinda have no control over what comes out. Or maybe i’m not trying hard enough. If people would just learn how to drive my mouth wouldn’t be so bad. Sheez


I want to:
