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.

Working at Sears now!! I feel like an independant woman! I’m so shocked they hired me even though I’ve been out of work for TWO WHOLE YEARS!! Hooray for second chances!!!

fall in love again

Regardless of wheteher it is with “him” or someone else…I want to feel those feelings again. I miss him more than he’ll ever know. More than he’ll ever know.

Learn to say no
Learn to say No

To often I find myself in situations that I could’ve easily avoided, had I learned to say “no”. I too often follow gut instincts and fleshly desires without accessing the consequences of my actions. There are dire consequences for both myself, my family, and those I love around me. (i.e. cheating on Steven) Another way I look at this goal is that I can sometimes be unwillingly submissive, in order to please other people. I find myself talking to men who obviously only want to sleep with me, but I can’t find it in my heart to stand up ofr myself and tell them “no” i dont want to talk to you if all you’re going to talk about is how sexy I am. Thanks, but no thanks. I’m hoping I can ascess situations thouroughyl before jumping into them, and to be more assertive when I’m feeling uncomfortable.


I want to:
