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.

Beginnings HereI mentioned this to my group

I told them that we have been given so many accolades for our work together and we really should take a moment and allow these to be celebrated.

We discussed why we don’t. Why we don’t feel that we can.

I hope that we will soon. 9 months ago

Beginnings Herereally bad about this!

I want to get better.

tangible things to do:

once a month, get the staff or project team together and celebrate progress and our success. make the time and make this a priority.

when incredible things happen, respond in an incredible way. start giving to the community and your favorite non-profit more than you are.

you can give big now. give back big. real big. make a dent in a problem. 1 year ago

Beginnings HereThanksgiving Celebration

I am going away with my honey to celebrate thanksgiving. He has a decade milestone to celebrate and we have our time together and an anniversary to celebrate.

I have so much to be THANKFUL for this year.


I am so grateful.

I would like to think about how to best “give back”. I am on 5 non-profit boards…which give to the community. But, I don’t feel connected to the ground on how this directly affects people. (though I know the work I do – both for profit and non-profit has profound effects on quality of life – I feel arm’s length from it.

Like Sandy – I might help from a distance, not on the ground. Not feeling connected.

How to feel grounded in my gratitude and thank you s in a more direct way? Maybe that isn’t what’s important. For me to feel it. As long as the recipients feel the action, that is all that matters.

I am looking forward to Thanksgiving for life…good to be here.

Amazing year. 2 years ago

Beginnings HereThings didn't go as planned.

In some ways they got better.

In other ways they got worse.

But…following the chinese – do nothing – I am…on the right track of reframing the pace, the balance and the value of life, living and prioritization.

Nothing could define success more than what i want in my life.

I am getting what I want – more and more every day. 2 years ago
