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.

silent subway dance party to our mp3 players in rush hour. a couple people joined in. hehehe worth doing. 6 years ago


glamourbombing is planned for my 21st bday party this w’end… I mean, I’m all, all, ... ah lets see. I think I’ll put around realms of tiny soft white squares of paper and some coloured pencils for people to write each other things… poems, drawings, writing… and I shall also, ah, I think use random glamourbombs (empty eggshells filled with sparkles and quotes etc) and maybe also ummmm… stuff ;)
And hand them to people as they go… or… something… cause if they are lying around people might not take them. We’ll see anyway!

EDIT : it went okay actually. not top notch but okay. i scattered 48 shades of brown quotes around on squares of paper. :D 7 years ago

Lone_Duckto watch or not to watch!

i wrote out some nice stuff on the back of two old fashioned valentines day cards, nice stuff about how they have a pretty face and are truly beautiful and stuff. we are having a big event in my town this weekend and i plan on sticking them in random places where i know they will be found and hope they brighten someones day. i might stay and watch…to see if anybody finds it, and if it really does brighten there day..but it really would be a disapointment if i saw someone read it and laugh, then throw it on the ground! hmmm 7 years ago


I just did this :D i have put an note in a library book (on page 43), I hope it wil inspire someone! 7 years ago


About two years ago I had a 43 things account. I had forgotten my name/password etc and was pretty sure my goals would’ve changed a lot anyway so I made a new one.

I just found my old account and a lot of the things I want to do havn’t changed! But good news is I’ve also managed to actually do some of the things I wanted to!

Glamourbombing was amongst my original 43 things.
I love the idea of spreading a little bit of magic. I once read of glamourbombing being perceived as a random act of kindness when really it is a senseless act of beauty. I love that. A senseless act of beauty. We need more of that in today’s world. 7 years ago

Kake69This sounds like fun

I love it’s random act of kindess touch – a poem or inspiration letter tucked in a library book or book in a bookstore for someone to read – what about a love letter left to the person who finds it? I know that would brighten my day! 8 years ago


Me just being around is glamourbomb enough. 8 years ago


I think the world has gotten too cynical… I think I’m getting too cynical. What’s wrong with a little magic, a little wonder? Right now, it seems like most people could use a little wonder in their lives, but would they believe it if they saw it or would they rationalize it into a neat, little compartment? Would they even see it—those walking around talking on their cells or using their I-pod headphones, busy trying to get from point a to point b without actually seeing where they are going? There’s a little magic all around, but nobody ever really looks. 8 years ago
