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.

lorddevPre-existing conditions

When I went independent last year, I assumed I’d be able to get private coverage for my wife and me, as there wasn’t a gap in coverage. But they turned us down for pre-existing conditions. So we are waiting for Health Care Reform to kick in, in 2014. 20 months ago


So I don’t have to spend a lot of money in hospital bills, see y I always have headaches 23 months ago

lindsay kamakahiGot a fabulous job

And the benefits in it was health insurance which calms my mind and spirit with the health problems that those I love have had come upon them… 3 years ago


I got a job, I worked there six months, and then I got health insurance. But they had us working 60 – 70 hour weeks and my supervisor threw a fit every time I suggested I needed a day off, so I put off going to the doctor and then I got laid off. A few months later I got a new job, got health insurance, went to six doctor appointments (see, no wasted time, this time) and then the company closed, I was laid off, and I’ve lost my health insurance. So despite achieving this goal, twice, I am still trying to get health insurance. 3 years ago
