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.

Foole never can say "Goodbye" (to 43) Number 16. A song that helped you through a break up/loss

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4PkcfQtibmU

This has been my anthem for the last ten months. Yes, I’m walking, but trust is another issue. However, at my age, I’m comforted in knowing how very unlikely I’ll ever have to play that game again. Solitary and FREE!

and please spare me the insipid condolences of “It only takes time.” or there’s someone out there for everyone”. Yes, there is and I’ve found her. It’s ME. 3 months ago

No explanation needed.

Peggy Lee – Is That All There Is?14 months ago


Simon2) A song that makes you want to get out your lighter and roar along with the crowd

Here’s an oddity. On the face of it, my choice is too fast-paced for lighter-waving, and yet, in my mind, it works perfectly.

Pink Floyd – Another Brick in the Wall Part 214 months ago


Simon3) A song that makes you want to throw the radio out of the window rather than listen to it

Well, this is easy. I can choose almost anything from the UK Top Twenty from the last ten years.

I suppose I should be specific. How about this?14 months ago


Simon4) A song that has an amusingly irritating way of sticking in people’s minds if you sing it, so they end up humming it all day ;p

It’s taken a while to think of a fitting tune. I’m sure that’s down to some kind of protective amnesia; my brain refused to think of a mind-sticking song because it didn’t want to be stuck with it. And now I’ve overcome that reluctance, I’ll be singing this damn song for ages. I hope you do to. :P

Village People – YMCA14 months ago


MMiller0601Days 4 and 5 of the 30-Day Song Challenge

Day 4: A song with an amusingly irritating way of sticking in people’s mind if you sing it around them: Toni Basil’s Hey Mickey

Day 5: A song that makes me nostalgic: oddly enough it is the Run-DMC/Aerosmith song Walk This Way14 months ago


MMiller0601Day 2 of the 30-Day Song Challenge

A song that makes me want to get out my lighter and sing along with the crowd is George Thorougood’s song Bad to the Bone.

And #3: a song that makes me want to throw the radio out the window rather than listen to it is “Don’t Worry, Be Happy” – they played it to death during exam time when I was going to VA Tech as an engineering student. I still can’t listen to it without cringing. 14 months ago

Simon5) A song that makes you nostalgic

I’m going to cheat here. This song isn’t about nostaglia per se, it’s about saudade.

Mike And The Mechanics – The Living Years14 months ago


Simon6) A song that lifts your spirits

Like #8, I have plenty of options here. Should I choose an oldie, a song which lifts my spirits by re-awakening happy memories? Or a newer tune, mentally connected with more up-to-date fun times?

Ah, I know! A song from a couple of years ago, which gets me reminiscing about a road trip across a couple States. We were driving up a slight hill, with wind turbines in the distance, when the first notes drifted from the speakers.

Blake Shelton – Honey Bee

It was a good vacation. 14 months ago


Simon7) A song that reminds you of an ill advised (but wickedly fun) person/place/time

I was roughly thirteen years old, with a bunch of guys of similar age, playing on a construction site, and decided to sing and dance this song while atop a six foot tall stack of bricks. Although it ended badly, with me falling down a gap in the stack, it was a lot of fun. Ah, the happy, carefree days of puberty!
