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.

Im soooo happy….. Ive done this…. I know who I am!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I know what I want!!!!! I knew I would figure it out!!!


so i relized that i needed to raise my standards and i needed to do that for me! and i did it! and in the end what i had right in front of me was what i wanted and needed in my life and through the hardest times of that i learnt so much about myself and it feels awsome, now i know it wasnt completely that i needed to raise my relationship standard but that i needed to find myself and find myself in my partner! i did, well, i am, its a prosess and it feels great! for NO ONE will i settle less in myself! and thats exactly what i know now and needed to know!


I settle for less! and i did that because i didnt relize what i was capable of, and i didnt even relize how good a person i really was! Man, there are a lot of people out there not right for me, and i keep lowering my standards thinking they could be right for me! for this experiance I will raise my “relationship” standards! I AM WOMEN, HELLO NEW ME!!!
