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.

visit all 50 states

i would love to someday say I’ve been to all fifty states I won’t want to stop there. To simply just visit somewhere is not enough for me. How can I learn about the places, and history, culture, and the people without staying or living there. I still learn new things just here in Indiana. I figure as long as I’m happy and forever learning then it doesn’t really matter how many places I have been.

quit biting my nails

yikes. This is something I’ve dreamed about doing my whole life. lame right? but biting my nails is sooo gross. HA, must try to resist. meow

stop whining

whining…seriously so annoying. I don’t hearing people whine and I’m sure they feel the same. In the end does it ever really change things, and even if it did I’m sure I can get it without sounding like a child.


I want to:
