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.

Toll Roads

I paid for the toll for 2 cars behind me. It felt really good. Going to the next toll I paid for another car behind me. This could get really addicting. I will definitely have to cut down on diet coke and starbuck purchases. It felt really nice to do a little something for someone when I am aware that I will never get a Thank you. I have no idea who they are. I told the toll clerk to tell them “Merry Christmas”

Disney Tickets

Someone sent me a link to free disney tickets for the Disney christmas parade filming. You could print out up to 8 tickets which even included parking. I then sent it out to everyone on facebook. I even got a Thankyou from a family of 5!!!

I donated my hair to the Locks of Love program.

I am so proud of this accomplishment. I have been growing my hair out for awhile. I found a salon that gives to the organization on a regular basis. I went to them for a trim. It’s a bit expensive. They did not charge me for the actual chop. I did give a very generous tip. I am so happy with the cut. It meant so much to me to give and know that a child is going to benefit from my hair donation.

Locks of hair

Well I need to get a trim just to get my highlights out. If I do this soon… I think around December my hair might be ready to get the chop. I actually think it’s long enough now but I need to get the color off of my ends. I have been wanting to give to the Pantene hair collection for cancer patients for awhile now. They will accept 8 inches vs. the Locks of hair is 10 inches I believe. I have to start researching short hair cuts. I know that the stylists like the pictures.


ok.. I was inspired yesterday from a It was an entry about a lady who had $50 dollars to give to charity or to help someone and she wanted ideas on what to do with the money. Well she got a lot of entries. One entry was a link to the Oprah show about paying it forward. I want to be more active with this goal. I want to plan out something nice to give someone. My husband says that we have a little money to work with each month. Even if it is just paying for someones meal in drive-thru, I want to give back in the community. I am going to make it a goal to give back month by month. I am going to research the nonprofit organizations in my area and see what I can do.

someones entry stated that this site was easier than photoshop.
