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.

be a good girl


Entries from everyone


I’m trying to be good by working hard today. From time to time however I find myself getting distracted—oh, look, a butterfly! ...Sorry, what was I saying? :^) 4 years ago


I don’t know why I put this on here. I’m always good, honest! ;o) 4 years ago

coolwhipkatei am always trying

i try to be a good girl. im a little spoiled and in a lot of ways i have no identity. i cant decide who i am. i want to fit in but i want to be different. i want to be natural but i really want purple hair. sometimes i feel like the people who know me are telling me who i am and trying to keep me in a little box. why cant i just be a person and tell them this is me, i change, i grow, and what is wrong with purple hair? 5 years ago

momentmebe always a good's not easy!

There are so many traps in the daily life and somehow we dont know that, do we?
Sometimes we do the wrong things just because we have nothing else to do…then we get trapped!
Be smart and do for myself a favour…thats my goal to be a pretty good girl! 7 years ago

MelsDinerI do try!

Idea is to be not pouty about stuff (even when PMSing lol), not let others’ mood pull me down, get my work done, take care of myself, and do my best to make him happy hehe… 9 years ago
