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.

stop drinking (read all 50 entries…)
Been awhile

So I was good for awhile – as it always seem to go – the kids look into your eyes and they know of youve been drinking or not…..

When you free of the fog – you remember how alive your brain can be – then your so smart – you can just have a couple of drinks fishing – making an excuse to go to the dock to get some stuff – a pint of vodka – you blame the rocking of the boat for how your stumbling around – guess what – the boat ride ends and your three hours from home….

you do what any good drunk would do – “hey I am alright to drive”...

you make it home – and realize your an idiot – by the grace of god….lord help me – keep trying everyone.

pray for us all…

for posting. i guess when your kids tell you your drunk and to go to bed – you have had enough. i cannot – do not – drink any where near or like anyone i know….when i start there is no finish…other than…DONE.

what a waste of time…brian states it nicely, i am the one who needs to figure it out….i mean be done.

please lord help me to be done. i cannot ask for help, in the normal conventions of the world….

stop drinking (read all 50 entries…)

I am not sure what i was thinking. I know I am starting over, not ready to post quite just yet, just know there is no “one” drink. I am bitter and angry at myself for letting myself do something i know felt wrong and – -

In the end i know i want to stop drinking and that best for everyone – and for a moment i gave in to “having a little fun” which turned into…SHIT.

Worse part is – trying to rationalize with myself (and the insane person I become)....

stay strong – back here with you….feeling much better – but ashamed at myself -

See all entries ...


I want to:
