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.

Do something nice for my wife daily

skingbogusmoved a bunch of furniture

typically when I get home, I am spent, done. I don’t want to monkey around with a bunch of honeydo’s all night; however, last night I faithfully moved furniture around and put away all our Christmas garbage. This is truly a major accomplishment; because typically, I whine on this stuff. 5 years ago

skingbogusDid some laundry without being asked...

I know you might think this sounds sexist, but my wife handles the laundry in our house and everything else. I only do the dishes as a daily chore. Today, I did the laundry for her. 5 years ago

skingboguskid bailout

I was in the middle of working, and she asked me to pick up our youngest from School; which I did without complaining—i picked up the kidder some lunch and dropped her off at my wife’s meeting location. Small thing, but helpful. 6 years ago

skingbogusdaily thing

It’s not much, but it snowed a ton here in denver, so I cleaned off the wifey’s car and started it up, so it would be nice and toasty for her. 6 years ago
