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.

follow jesus

There seems to be much confusion about this subject among Christians and others. However, when I decided to do this and started reading the Gospel accounts in Matthew, Mark, Luke and John, it is quite clear why Jesus came and what he asks of us. The confusion may be more because it sounds hard and self-less.

Get a new job
the network

all the job posting sites got me one interview all together. At a bad company i might add. The network of family, friends and church got me in the door and lead me to a great new job.

Have a positive net worth

I know everyone would “like” to have a Positive Net Worth, but most people never make it a serious goal. I am about $140k in the hole between my home and cars. A few weeks ago I was laid off. It was a bit unexpected considering I was thought of by many as being the best in my department. They (being a large corporation) used length of service as the factor for the layoff. But I am doing fine financially. This even made me reconsider all of my spending habits and I realized how long I will be paying for all of my crap. Once I start a new job, I hope that my wife and I can keep up this thoughtful handling of money.


I want to:
