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.

“When you are inspired by some great purpose, some extraordinary project, all your thoughts break their bounds… and you discover yourself to be a greater person by far than you ever dreamed yourself to be.”

Patanjali, physician and “founder” of yoga

I never dreamed I’d have so much fun on one goal. Thanks Josh for the inspiration for this extraordinary project!!!


I’m NOT ready for my company on Saturday and I completely blame Josh—because it’s certainly NOT Flirt’s fault!!!

The quote from the goal page:

“What a wonderful life I’ve had! I only wish I’d realized it sooner.” Colette

Well, Colette, I think you should probably blame Josh for that!!!

Now Josh has joined the team

and I totally blame Josh for that!!!

If anyone would like to *blame Josh*

The site doesn't go down at 3:00 anymore

so I don’t have any excuse to go to bed :-( And I blame it ALL on Josh!

I'm almost out of room for new goals

and I DEFINITELY blame Josh for that!!!
