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.

My Hero's are vast...

But I’ve narrowed down the theory behind why I like them, and want to emulate them…
My Gram B… who mothered everyone and never turned anyone away
Grand G who planned for his entire families future to ensure their comforts
Dad who would give himself for another
Mom who was overprotective
Husband who has never ending patience, and makes me a better person
Gram V who kept them all in line
Mother T who gave selflessly and believed even if others didn’t
My son who shows me how hard it is to be a leader
My daughter who teaches me patience and new ways to do things
My baby who fills everything with hugs, yellow, and laughter
L for knowing the difference and standing up for whats right
AB for understanding that much is unfair, but standing against it anyway


I want to:
