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.

5PrincessThe pleasure of writing

I enjoy writting and find it a away for self expression. However, also enjoy writting a letter to my family and friends. So my goal is to write a letter at least once a week to someone in my life. Even if its just a short note. 16 months ago

I don’t have an extra room to have a library in my house since I don’t…...I built a digital library. I have over 1,000 digital books and that doesn’t included the other books I own. So I don’t have the library I thought I would have….....I have a better one…...I can take this one every where I go. :-) 23 months ago

This took a lot of work, some ups and downs, tears and a whole lot of talking as well as rethinking things. But, with all of that I was able to make it through and now I’m in a great relationship that turned into me being happily married. :-) 23 months ago

I’m so happy with my husband and this was worth all the work that I did to get to the point where I could get married again. I’m happy and love my husband so much. 23 months ago

5PrincessWorking it through

After 6 year of having this goal and not getting anything done, I am finally getting something done. Taking steps towards getting rid of this goal. It is a lot of work and I still have a lot of work ahead of me but I am sure in time I will get passed this and be just fine. 2 years ago


You are welcome, I’m glad I could share. Keep smiling and enjoy your day.


That’s the way to do it. Start off small and in time it comes natrually.

5PrincessFeel so good.

I have done this one a number of times, I dont like negative people so I keep them out of my life sometimes it is harder when they are close to you or even family members but I have learned how to deal with it no matter what and move on with life and not have negative people around me or in my life pulling me down. 3 years ago

5PrincessWorking on this right now

I am working on this right now, it takes up a lot of time, I love it through it. 3 years ago

5PrincessGood and bad to this goal

It is worth doing but you have to be willing to let yourself go to let others in to your heart. Take the chance of being hurt. The one thing is that when you do fall in love there is no other feeling like it. 8 years ago

5PrincessI have to do this

I wear glasses so I get new ones every year or so. 4 years ago
