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.

Thought process

I have a dictation app on my phone. It gives me the oppertunity to get my thoughts out

weigh 137 lbs
my reason

My self help guru would say the why will take care of the How. Why would I want to weigh 137? It is such a random number-I know! Well, I asked a friend of mine to pick a number ( I didn’t tell him why) and that is the number he choose. It is perfect, actually, because as of now I weigh 195lbs. When I weigh 137 I will have lost 58 lbs. They also say if you shoot for the moon, you will at least be among the stars. 137 is a safe weight for me. I will look spectacular.

bake bread
bring warmth into the food

I don’t have time to be the domestic goddess that I had always imagined myself being. That being said, if I could have just one skill that my kids could remember, I wish that could be baking bread. I had a bread machine but I kind of think that is cheating. I think I will give it a go


I want to:
