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.

Peggy HillFantastic Summer

This has been the best summer ever so I think that I am on my way to acheiving this goal! 23 months ago


Peggy HillUntitled

During my several visits to Arizona, I have observed that Arizonians live a more relaxed, uplifting and positive life than where I am from. They also are health conscious. I also think that the sunlight makes them more cheerful by nature. I would like to be more like them. 23 months ago

Peggy HillAunt Award

I think that I may deserve an aunt award by the end of this summer.

At the beginning of the summer, my husband and I spend a week at Disney with one set of nieces and nephew. Then we spent a weekend at the beach with another set. Today the third set of nieces are spending the day at our house playing video games. And finally, next week my oldest niece will be staying with us for a week.

I miss out on so much of their lives during the year that I make a strong effort to see them in the summer. But this summer has included an impressive amount of time with them, especially when you consider that the ones located closest to us are 120 miles away. 1 year ago

Peggy Hill#6

The goal for the year has been achieved, but I think that I will continue to maintain the list until the end of the year just to see how many I attend.

Performance #6 was by a band called Funk Station. While they did not play one funk song during the two sets that we watched, they were an outstanding and extremely entertaining Southern Rock band that played at a townie place called Your Mama’z House with a river as the backdrop. We had a great time! 2 years ago

Peggy HillJob

I honestly think that after all of these years, I have finally gotten my job in perspective. It is important,but it isn’t me and is not the most important thing in my life. I hope that this can continue. 2 years ago

Peggy HillRetirement

I know several people that have retired recently or are in the process of retiring within the next 2 months.

The ones that already have retired look great and constantly talk about all of the things that they always wanted to do, but couldn’t while they were working. Some of those things include traveling, fishing, participating in sports, working out more often, reading, volunteering and playing musical instruments.

The ones that are retiring soon are prioritizing what they are going to do first. While I understand that setting goals for this time of their life is important, I begin to wonder why so many people wait so long to do these activities that make them so happy.

Money isn’t a reason because most people have less money when the retire or at least are concerned enough about their financial future that they don’t waste it.

I asked a few people and they said that time was the issue.

Time? Really?

Many of these people work 7.5 hours a day and time prevents them from fishing, golfing, volunteering and working out? I think time is the best excuse, but not the reason.

I wont be retiring for at least 17 years, but I plan to keep things in perspective by doing as many of my retirement activities as possible…. Now.

Why wait? 2 years ago
