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.

make more guy friends
Women's College + Nannying = No Guy Friends

I’ve basically dug myself a large testosterone-free social grave, and since not many of my girl friends have guy friends either this is going to be difficult. But let’s face it, when all my friends graduate in May I’m going to have no friends at all! Kidding, but in all seriousness I also just miss having men in my life, and finally, if I ever want to be able to date men I have to be able to be friends with them too! Basically I need a course in Males 101 and I need to diversify my friend group. I love you ladies but the world is made up of more than just women!

grow my hair long
If I can complete any of these goals, it has to be this one!

Because really, all I have to do is NOT cut my hair! My hair does grow exasperatingly slowly though. One thing I have tried to do in the past is take fish oil supplements to help it grow faster. It works but I just have to remember to take them! Alright, I will take them. This HAS to be a goal I can accomplish. :)


I want to:
