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.

paint my house
Paint? CHECK!

Okay I finally went to Home Depot and bought all my needs to finish my house. Now….when to start? Sigh. It seems everytime I think we have a free weekend something comes up! Never fails. I told my husband we need to pretend we’re on vacation and disconnect the phones. So far this weekend looks free, we’ll see what happends!

stay at a oceanside hotel alone and just veg and SLEEP

I am really lacking in this. I need to get away and just veg and do whatever I want without catering to anyone but myself. YES! Be evil and selfish and eat chocoalte, watch garbage on TV and SLEEP until…whenever! ALONE.

learn greek
Pimsleur is nice

I’ve been using Pimsleur Greek Cd’s in my car to learn the conversational part, which my kids are picking up on quicker than I am! Embarrassing. And baby books to learn to read it. I don’t think I’ll ever be able to write it, but if I can read it and speak it that’s fine. So I’m doing okay with it, but my kids, especially my 9 year old, are kicking my butt. Ahhhh to have a fresh kid brain.
