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.

stop focusing on things that are I cannot change

I really want to stop thinking about things that are in the past, or things that I cannot change- My desire is to learn and practice RADICAL ACCEPTANCE…and spend more time creating better goals…and less time dealing with disappointing people- yeah!!!!

visit every state in the U.S.
40 so far...

My favorite states would HAVE to include New Mexico, Arizona, Lousiana, Kentucky, Texas, Colorado, and Cali… All have their own unique charm and beauty, but these are places that I would consider moving to…

learn bellydancing

I have always wanted to bellydance- I think that it is incredibly sexy, and is great exercise- and I think that it would shape my body in all of the right places, to make it look the way that I would like to look- not whittling my body down to nothing- but working all of the muscles in all of the right places- giving me all of the right curves, in all of the right places- very womanly and healthy looking…kind of like Shakira’s body… plus, it is one of the oldest forms of dance, and allows you to tell a sensual story with your body- again, incredibly sexy, and I am sure, fun to do- as well as watch. I love the idea of your body REALLY becoming one with every beat of the music-
