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.

not going well lately

haven’t really gone to any clubs or practiced much lately. My friends don’t do clubs. And the girl I was seeing before was more hesitant about dancing than me. I need new friends if this is to progress.


i’m getting better my cousin says, wish salsa wasn’t so hard. step by step though. now i just have to learn how to lead lol.


class is again in session my cuz is coming over, she is my savior


This was on hold for a bit cause my cousin/teacher decided she wanted to go away before school started again, and left me halfway through my lessons. I’ve been practicing a little. Now that she is back lessons will continue and i’ll be decent dancer soon.

i must learn to dance

oh the shame, everyone is a good dancer in my family except me. my cousin is teaching hopefully i’ll get good at it soon. my merengue is good but that’s easy, now i’m learning salsa, then i’ll try cumbia. because i’m hispanic my nonhispanic friends think dancing to me is like soccer, well actually i’m not good at soccer either. anyways they always ask me to teach them how to dance and well i don’t know how to.

Francisco has gotten 6 cheers on this goal.


I want to:
