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.

fund a microloan through
small help, big rewards

I only gave a small amount of $25 to someone asking for a loan of $500. Others contributed so this woman got the full loan. She has already paid 65% of the total loan back! When she pays back the full loan I will be able to take my $25 back or use it to help another person in need of a loan.

It’s great to be able to help people start or grow their businesses so they and their children can have better lives, even if it’s just in such a small way.

create a "mind movie"
What is a Mind Movie?

A “Mind Movie” is kind of like creating a “vision board.” Creating a visual collage of images and words of what you want to have in your life, what you want to create, or “manifest” in your life. But with a mind movie you use your computer to create a sort of slideshow with pictures and words of what you want. Check it out at

be as big as the ocean
finding the ocean

I used to be afraid of being “big.” I was afraid if I let myself be as big as I really am deep inside that I’d make other people mad at me. So I shrunk back emotionally, socially, and even somewhat physically (becoming 30 pounds underweight).
I never dared let myself be as powerful as the ocean. Nor as calm. Nor as inspiring. None of the wonderful things that the ocean can be. Well actually I can be calm a lot of the time.
Anyway, I know my heart and my soul IS as vast as the ocean, and it is time to let myself express this to all around me.
