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.

The first day of the rest of my life!!!

Thats right ladies and gentleman today is the first day of the rest of my life. I get these urges to make my life better once in awhile when I see or hear something uplifting but today is different, i feel something different. No more fast food, no more coke, no more computer games.

swim regularly
The first day of the rest of my life!!!

Tonight I finally made up my mind and I think I am actually going to stick with it this time… Something feels different and well I don’t really know how to describe it. No more fast food, no more computer games, nothing. I have been going regularly to swim but I miss once or twice a week and thats going to change starting today.

graduate from college
So over half way there!!!

So I have three years under my belt. Hopefully I can finish strong.


I want to:
