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.

design my own tattoo
It took a while but i got it started

I’m going to finish it out with a rainbow coming out like the lines of the staff and maybe some notes but I haven’t decided on the music yet

watch less tv

I have not just veg’d out in front of the TV in a long time. I watch Heroes, and the Simpsons, but that’s it! occasionally I watch the Daily Show/Colbert Report…
so much more time for real life. I write more, read more, work better, breath better, move more, eat less, think clearly, sing better, jump higher, run faster, laugh harder, have better sex, longer more intense (and frequent) orgasms, understand God in all things, feel more confident in crowds, fitter, happier, more productive, healthy blood pressure, learn medical advancements through osmosis and can type over 7000 characters a second with no errors!

own a nintendo again :(

I got a system called “yobo” on ebay, I can play all my old school Nintendo games on it (except gauntlet, i don’t know why). Tetris, SMB I II & III, Legend of Zelda, pinball, skate or die… excellent! I recommend it, and you can get the old games for short money too, if you don’t still have them.


I want to:
