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.

ودي اساعد بعض الناس واكون خيرمعين لهم 2 years ago

heaveemetalMy girlfriend needed help...

Her house was too expensive, she had not downsized from her move out of a failed marriage, she needed relief.
She came across a perfect apartment and we talked to them.
There was a plan made.
Decisions about what to take and what to jettison were made.
A truck was rented for 24 hours to move the big things.
Things were donated.
Other things were trashed.
A 30 cubic yard dumpster was filled to the top.
Pets were moved into the new place and acclimated.
An entire week was spent doing all the things that needed to be done.
Trying to get tomorrow to help finish.
Her new place has lots of potential.
Her last place was a money pit.
Crowded, energy inefficient and drafty as hell.
The power bill in the winter was close to $500.00.
And it wasn’t even warm.
Looking forward to a easier set of bills to handle for her.
I didn’t mind helping for a week at all.
I would hope that there is a lot of goodwill left in this world.
Helping hands instead of the “I’m busy” response we’ve all heard before… 3 years ago

KnowGreenNoWasteEarth Day is just around the corner!

Hey guys! Thought I’d kick it up a notch for Earth day this year and help promote a few key ideas:

First and foremost, I’d like to introduce you to Shaklee. An amazing line of natural, non-toxic (and completely healthy for us and the planet) products. I just tossed (safely and properly) all my old household cleaners a couple weeks ago in faith of promised outcomes. I can’t believe how well they work. For any of you who have you used “greener” products, you have to admit they don’t carry a lot of punch. This one is different. You can check it out all over or

Second, I have to tell everyone to go to Right now you can dedicate up to 5 trees to people you know, and then they get to do the same and so on. They have set out to plant a max of 10,000 trees this year but only if you dedicate one! So far they are just over 500 trees dedicated for planting.

Finally, keep updated on ‘green’ topics by checking out my blog at This month is recycling!

BOTCRCNeed To Help Out

I hate feeling helpless. When my brother gets hurt and all I do is stand there without thinking, blacking out, when my mom curses because she’s broken a bone and I don’t know what to do other than stand there, calling for help. I don’t help at all, and I need to change that.

I know that just turning lights off when I’m not using them helps. I know that turning the water in the sink off when I’m not running my toothbrush under it helps. I know that making my bed like I’m supposed to helps my mom by saving her time that she doesn’t need to waste. 3 years ago
