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.

I have an appointment. I am not looking forward to it AT ALL. It’s not the cleaning I’m worried about, it’s all the other stuff that they will inevitably tell me is wrong. And oh boy is there a lot wrong.

I really just want them to look nice. Can’t we just do the cleaning and ignore all the rest? 22 months ago


Terrified of the dentist. I’ve been putting this off forever, and my teeth really need it. I’m totally afraid of what they’re going to find, which is mostly what is keeping me from going immediately. 2 years ago

ZoreaIt's incredible

that I hadn’t done this before. It was because of the treatment I am with the dentist because I have periodontitis and part of the healing is a cleaning. I never did this before and the look of my teeths are extremely different now. 2 years ago

ZoreaFor the gums

I have an appointment in a little over an hour. It’s been a long time since I visited the dentist. It was a goal of mine and then I just dropped it. I’m going in for a simple cleaning. I have been taking good care of my teeth…but I’m sure there is at least one cavity. I will hear about it today.
The dentist comes highly recommended and is literally across the street from where I work. I like that. I did everything I could this week & this morning to make my teeth look as good as possible. Lets see what they say! 3 years ago
