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.

I read six books so far. They were recently acquired so I’m proud of that. Usually they just lie around until I get to them.


I got a set of new beads which I started using right away instead of hoarding like I usually do.


6. My navy blue maxi skirt which I seldom wear

Shopping my closet/ house

I’ve fallen back into my old habit of not using my stuff. I use and wear the same things over and over again while I have a growing pile of never used items and items which I used only once. The main categories are clothes/accessories and books/magazines. I have a lot of craft books and magazines which I don’t really use. I want to wear all my clothes and evaluate why it is I haven’t worn them. I know that some haven’t been worn because I can’t wear them to work (where I spend a lot of time). I’ll be donating the ones I don’t wear in December.

I no longer have too much stationery. I had set a plan not to buy any this year until I have used up what I have. I have lots of notepads and drawing books but I need new pens now.

1. Rolling Stones tank top
