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.

go on a road trip with no predetermined destination

I have decided my whole life is just one big road trip with no predetermined destination. So, I’m still on it but I don’t see any reason to keep it on my list. Let the winds take me where they will. Bon voyage!!

learn to run
well, i never...

Well I never even walk let alone run, but I see people doing it do effortlessly and it look like great fun. Having a small child and working doesn’t leave me much time, but I think I could squeeze out a few minutes in the day to start walking and work my wag up.


I had every intention of completing this when I wrote it. I even bought equipment to use and its as if I never had the thought at all. I even walk past the equipment like it isn’t even there. I need help getting motivated on this one.

See all entries ...


I want to:
