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.

CalWhen I got a FaceBook account

I searched for my last name and found that there where a few people with that name in Chile, much to my surprise. I made contact with them and wish to go to meet them some time. My brother did meet with one man that I contacted, when he came to the US. 4 months ago

CalAt it again

Why is it so easy for me to switch over to meat and cake? Anyway with the help of my wife, I have started to eat a vegetable centered diet again. 5 months ago


Alcohol is a depressive, I tried for years to use it to beat my depression but it just won’t work. If I can be so bold, I suggest something that worked for me. Get into contact with your local AA group. The only way of treating a spiritual problem is with spiritual methods. 5 months ago

CalFixing up our house

I retired so I do not have a reason to not work on our house. I bought some rain gutters, that we are in need of, and when the gear comes to mount them I plan to install rain gutters on the front and back of the house. Plans do not prevent water damage however:-) 5 months ago
