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.

Get a tattoo
Once I Get the Money!

I have always been very close to my grandmother. I called her my “nanny-mama” when I was young. My mother and I lived with her & my grandfather (who I am also close to) for a while before I started school. She is getting older now, and loosing her will be the hardest thing I’ve had to deal with in my life. She always has loved hummingbirds and has passed that love on to me. She always compared me to them- tiny & petite but strongwilled and busy. I want to get a hummingbird tattoo with her initials in a ribbon above or below it. It would be my way of carrying her with me always and reminding myself to cherish this life that she worked to give me.

I have looked at tattoo designs and am going to try to combine different elements of each to make a work of art. I want a bit of color, but want to avoid that cartoonish look some pieces have.

Stop over analyzing
I'm On My Way

I’m not sure I’ll ever be “cured” of this. It’s a blessing and a curse. I am a very insightful and perceptive person. I have to take the bad with the good of this trait. But I have gotten better. Since I made this list I have met a wonderful man who loves me and my mind for all I am. He knows I worry too much and can see when the gears in my head are churning. He’s helped more than anything with plenty of reassurance and helping me find my quiet place.


I want to:
