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.

manage my Bipolar disorder
A must do!

Went through a recent crisis and had to be in the hospital. Since getting a better mix of meds I feel so much better.



Accept it, change it, or forget it.
It's all good

LIFE is a series of lessons, any way. The sooner we learn that the better life gets…just my 2$$ worth.



find at least one thing each day that makes me happy and record it (with a fun picture attached)everyday for a year (read all 58 entries…)
Doctors who know what they are doing

Spend some time in the hospital last week. It is nice to know that there are doctors (psych) who know what they are doing. I feel so much more in control and that makes me happy!
