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.

- The Robots.

ewcentro1Giving Up!

I have been considering given up on this goal. I did not realize how hard it was going to be when I made it one of my first goals a year ago.

After evaluating the pros and cons I realize that the problem is not the goal but that I never clarified my objective.

ewcentro1My Comfort Zone

Doing one new thing every month was going to be my way of gradually making some positive changes in my life. However, here I sit 6 months latter still secure in my boring uneventful comfort zone.

blauxin september i drew in the street

blauxtoday i went to a craft fair

i’ve wanted to go to this thing since it was first held 4 years ago, but every year i had to go to some sort of shower instead.
The craft show was the exact opposite of a baby or wedding shower in that i really enjoyed it!
The best part is that i didn’t feel this longing to create something the way i normally do when perusing the artsy wears of others, and i think its because i have a very healthy creative outlet at this time. Being happy with my own self expression has also opened my apparition of the work of others. I’ve never been into bringing art into the home until this past year. Today I got this cute print. And gun earrings. Life is so FUN!!! 6 years ago

am_27Planting a vineyard

My new thing for October: planting a vineyard in my in-laws place with the family. Lots of lugging and some learning. it’s fun to be out in the soil thinking about growing things. 9 years ago

am_27Dirt bike ridin'

Last month, I got on a little dirt bike for the first time. At first I crashed, couldn’t quite grasp the “pull back on the right hand and it goes fast” paradigm. But I quickly got the hang of it and started ripping up the Utah dirt. Anyway, it was out of character for me and thus a perfect candidate for try something new every month. 9 years ago


I started with a spinning class and then moved on to a Japanese bath/hot springs experience. Definitely worth doing. 9 years ago
