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 am combining a life plan with a….life plan. I have’t done much with this but I really understand the importance of it. I haven’t had the time because I have stressed. 2 years ago

elliewestonfinally started

It is my birthday tomorrow so I thought I should get started on this!!! It feels really good, even to put the hard things down on paper. It is a little exhausting though and a slow go but still great to get started. I have to do this…it feels so urgent all of a sudden. 2 years ago


I am so blue. I never feel this way. It makes me have more sympathy for people who grapple with depression but I also don’t know what to do with myself. I finally got well a little over a week ago. And yes, then I got sick AGAIN. The flu this time. I get knocked down so hard by all the bugs that come home…I have gotten every one of them and worse. Since the first of the year…RSV, Sinus infection, RSV bronchitis, Walking pneumonia, pleurisy, and now the flu. I am tired of being in bed. I am tired of feeling so crappy. I am tired. I am tired of coughing. I know all these things are the reason I am depressed. I can’t get up and do things. I am so behind. I keep thinking it is going to get better, but it has been 2 months and 11 days. And I don’t feel good right now so when is this all going to end? I am feeling kind of sorry for myself, which I also never do…it feels gross. ughhhhhhhh. 2 years ago

elliewestonmore time

I need to make this more of a priority. I have an impression of what this is, I have my book to guide me yet I still don’t get in there and get it done. I know I am behind on everything but I think having more of a life road map will make all my other goals easier. 2 years ago

elliewestonworking on it

I am going to work on this while I am in bed…hopefully by the end of the week I will have a workable plan. 2 years ago


I have kind of stalled on this goal being super busy for the holidays. I need to make a calendar for three years out for the important things in our lives. Birthdays, anniversaries, trips, vacations and school. I need to do some investigating about this and some decisions have to be made but I need to focus on it again! It is so easy to get sidetracked which is the very reason this goal is so important to me!! 3 years ago

elliewestonreading my book

I love my book so far! I think the thing I love the most is that I am working on the goal in a tangible way. I haven’t checked into other life plan books or ideologies but I will. 3 years ago

elliewestona book

I downloaded an ebook about life plans. It seemed ok…at least a start. I am really looking forward to working on this goal. 3 years ago

elliewestonworking on it

I guess I am not exactly sure what a life plan is…other than the obvious. As I was looking through my goals it seems like they sort of form a life plan and I can elaborate from there. I have started making some notes and I like where it’s going. 3 years ago
