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.

Eliminate the stuff from my life that doesn't fulfill me spiritually, emotionally or creatively

PancemasterOld Dance Dresses

I have a few dresses from high school that I’m ready to rid myself of. One, they don’t fit anymore. Two, they just hold too many memories that I want to put in the past already. Three, they’re taking up closet space. Having them isn’t fulfilling anything for me. They’re probably hindering me emotionally. Every time I see them I think about the past, and I’m trying to live in the present. 2 years ago

That aren’t improving my life.
I’ll be eliminating this before the next bill is due. 2 years ago


Sewing Machine- fulfilling (creatively and emotionally oddly enough)
Bulletin board- fulfilling (creatively and spiritually- I put quotes on it)
Broken headboard- Not fulfilling.
Loud desk- Not fulfilling me creatively at all. Not big enough!
Taping my work to the walls with masking tape- Not fulfilling!
Extra floorspace in my bedroom- fulfilling (emotionally)

My room is sort of my sanctuary. It fulflls me only to certan extent. It recharges my batteries. I can’t tolerate having a TV in my room anymore because it’s just too distracting. I rarely watch movies in my room.

Taking walks- fulfilling (emotionally- clears my mind)

Hmm… gotta think more about what fulfills me and what in my life just isn’t helping me. Physical possessions as well as people and actions I take. 2 years ago
