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.

get a tatoo on my foot
my tree of life

I got this amazing tattoo on my foot of a beautiful tree. it reminds me of where i came from and where i am going. i am strongly rooted in my beliefs and without my convictions i would be floating arounf lost in the world. it hurt like the dickens but was worth every second of pain!!

have a green wedding

it is so hard to live a truely green life these days. i am always aware of my actions and try to make the best decisions, but i find myself struggling at times to live up to the standards i have set for myself. i know there are so many more things i can do to help the environment, but it is so hard to always make the right choice when i live such a crazy busy lifestyle. i have made the commitment to have a green wedding to try an emphasize the important of living green to my friends and family. i want to show them that do the right thing by the environment doesn’t take huge sacrafice, just a little creative thinking and ingenuity. i hope that we can pull off all of the beautiful plabns we have made and that the day will be as special to everyone sharing it with us as it will be for us.
