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.

About to live on my own!

After bouncing around for about four or five years living with questionable roommates in questionable situations, I am about six weeks away from FINALLY getting my own apartment and six weeks away from gaining total and utter independence.
I. CANNOT. WAIT!!! I have my roommate to thank though for being completely crappy to me, for lying to me and pretty much using my generosity to help her out. No more! I’m so excited about this I haven’t been able to sleep the last couple of weeks. And to think I’ve come this far all on my own with no help from my family. Not that it wasnt welcome, my family has been out of the picture for quite some time now so I’ve had to take care of myself and make sure I keep my job. It’s going to be a very rough, hard, penny-pinching, EXHILARATING journey, but I’ve earned this spot and I am going to enjoy it to the fullest. To anybody else who’s moving out soon, best wishes to you. The time is takes to get there will be that much better because you will have worked so hard for it. Good luck!
Nothing truly worth having is ever gained easily


I want to:
