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.

Move to NYC
OMG I did it!

Today is my 6th day living in Brooklyn. I made the firm decision to move to NY on New Years Eve. On April 1st my car was packed and drove to NY from California. I stayed with a friend in Long Island while I worked from my laptop and looked at apartments in the city. It took 2 weeks to find my perfect place and another week to move in and get my stuff organized so I actually felt like I had my own cool space. It’s still not DONE, I still need furniture and things on the walls to make it homey, but it’s mine and I’m happy.

Just got it done Saturday. And I couldn’t be happier. I’ve wanted to for soooo long. But something would come up, or I was busy or something. Now it’s done and I freaking love it.

stop caring what other people think
On my way...

Well I wouldn’t say this is completely DONE, but last night I sent an email to a boy, saying some things I’ve been too worried to say for MONTHS. And OH MY HELL it was liberating. I don’t care if he never writes back because I did it for me. Without integrity we are nothing. I feel free. And I didn’t care what he would think. And it felt great. I highly recommend it.


I want to:
