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.

Peggy HillIn God's Hands

There are many things going on in my life right now that are not good. None of them are life-threatening but they most certainly could be life-changing. After a quick trip to the homeland, I have finally realized that I am not in control of the situations and I need to make the best of whatever happens. I probably should have done this years ago, but now I am letting these situations rest in God’s hands.

Peggy HillAttended Church

I attended a new church today. While its the first time that I entered the building and met the people, the religion was that same one that I was baptized, confirmed and raised with. It felt both comforting and comfortable. I would like to try a few different churches, but I definitely needed and appreciated my experience this morning. 23 months ago

BlackSwan90Found it?

I think I may have found a religion I fit under: Unitarian. There is a congregation in my town, which I didn’t expect. I’ve done some reading, and I like the sound of Unitarianism, the congregation sounds nice but I have never been to any kind of religious service before, I keep picturing myself sitting there surrounded by people decades older than me, fidgeting and nervous and mousey quiet hoping I won’t have to say anything.


I just don’t know. 2 years ago
