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.

i should have removed this off my to-do list…coz i’m soo through with it. almost every week…i dance. though not going through a whole routine of dances that i used to.

its probably the happiness. when you happy, its always easy to stump your feet and hum a tune until you finally find your body swaying and dancing! happy!

not enough time

me and my siblings didnt have enough time to do the video that i talked about last month. but i’m doing something for this goal now. yesterday, i danced to a familiar song that was a hit 5 or six years ago, then danced again today. its nice to sweat and feel all the dormant muscles move again.. and see myself dance again (in the mirror, in my room. ha! whre else?!) =)


i get the chance, i dance. me and my siblings are planning to take a video of us doing a choreographed dance. we havent practiced yet..our schedule doesnt allow us to. but soon….we will! sounds fun!

i'll miss the concert

The squad that i was in is going to hold a concert next month…ohhh they asked me if i wanna take part. but the practices will be held at night. And i cant coz my schedule in the hospital changes daily (the head nurse wont allow me to have all the day shifts). shrug shrug shrug… i’ve been dancing in front of the mirror… but dancing with all the costumes and big production – that’s a better picture. =(
i’ve sacrificed so much for much. but no regrets.. it’ll all pay off someday soon.


I used to be a cheerleader in our university.. I miss dancing with the drums and doing all the routines. I also wanna do hip hop and swing again. I wanna dance again… well, I’d probably start tomorrow in my room. =)

merlotini has gotten 10 cheers on this goal.


I want to:
