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.

Bridge and I

lucked on a deal to buy an RV together for 2000 in payments of 350 a month that would house us both. She worked off the lot rent part time for the park and I paid the mortgage. Great for three months…. then she started getting pissed over every word that came out of my mouth. When she told me to get out 3 times I had to. I had trusted her enough to not have my name on the purchase agreement. She said thats how they wanted it. She kicked me out 4 days after I paid that months mortgage and sent me down the road with 40 dollars and no where to go but Moms. Why do I keep trying?


Keith turned out to be in an “Open” relationship of 30 years that he neglected to tell me about, and after investing money into preparing for a trip he was never really going to embark on…I bought my own little tiny livaboard sailboat. But without the partner, the plan fell flat… so I sold the boat and moved to oregon to be near my friend Bridge and work on some books. Partner…plan…purpose.

Well, Nature wasn't the partner...

But Keith has hung in there for 5 months now, and the plan is progressing smoothly. We are sailing south in 2 weeks, if everything goes as planned.


I’ve loved him forever, it seems.

We’re going to try again.

I love him soooo much! I feel so grateful that love like that exists to be experienced, and I’m getting another shot at a “Great Love”. Sigh.

3 little things...

And yet they are really all thats needed for happiness for most people.


I want to:
