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.

Find my best friend from 2nd Grade
Found her

I have been searching for my friend from 2nd grade since I moved away, I finally found her on Facebook. She had been looking for me as well. Great feeling to finally connect, I have always wondered about her. Now I know.

find happiness
in the eye of the beholder

Hsppiness is a tricky thing. What is it really? I started to think it was all an illusion, I was constantly in a hurry to reach ‘happiness’ or what i THOUGHT it would be. Well, i think it comes and goes, different shapes and sizes. But today I realized, hey I am happy. Overall, I am happy right now. Yes there are somethings in my life that would not classify in that category.. but I am not going to let them bring me down. I can’t change ppl or the world, I can only work around it or with it.

appreciate what I have
Appreciation & Gratitude

I have recently stubbled upon a new way of thinking and ultimately living. Once you discover how to appreciate the things you have and truely be grateful for them, only good can come from it. I have started this and will continue to live this way, I believe it will bring my life great things.


I want to:
