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.

Fix my teeth
I don't want to have my teeth fixed, I NEED to have them fixed.

My teeth are so ugly and discolored, it it ruining my life! I don’t want to smile at people, especially if someone is taking a picture. My dentist told me I have a genetic defect that caused the enamel on my teeth not to develop properly, so my teeth are not beautiful, shiny & WHITE. It really effects my daily..everything! It have gotten to the point where I feel like people don’t want to be around me or talk to me because of my teeth. If I’m not smiling, welcoming a new face, then people become standoffish. I talk to people and I see them look down, and I feel like they’re seeing my ugly teeth. I am 28 years old and have suffered with this long enough, I should be happy and smiling all the time..but instead it is self consciousness :(

sell, trash, giveaway things i dont really need but have kept because i just dont feel like letting go
Forget Spring cleaning! I want Winter, Spring, Fall & Summer cleaning!

I feel as though my life is so cluttered..not only with ‘stuff’, but people. I was feeling very anxious one night and woke up the next morning questioning everything and everyone around me. That day, I decided I need to only have positive people in my life, and be around people that I truly care about and who want me around. Self analysis is the best thing..and it has affected my entire life. I am getting rid of things that I thought I needed or felt attached to..and analyzing friendships that really don’t have strong connections anymore. It feels great to give things away that I no longer need or want..and making new friends with people with common interests seems to be healthier than trying to hold on to friendships that have no strong bonds. I had a yard sale to sell some things.. donated clothing & brought some items to consignment shops. It not only feels good to ‘detox’ my own life, it feels great giving things away, making others happy..and meeting new people who share common interests 


I want to:
