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.

zbjg23Waffle fries

Still doing good. No real urges to have any but I still think about them when I pass by a fast food restaurant. I’ve decided that next year if I want some fries the first place I will have to get them from is Chick-fil-A :) Their waffle fries have always been my favorite! 3 years ago

zbjg23Five Guys

Last week at work we got Five Guys and this is the first time in a while I really wanted fries cause they’re so good, but I didn’t have not a one! Just a tasty bacon cheeseburger :) 3 years ago


I actually had a dream last night that I bought some french fries and when I was eating them realized my mistake! The worst part is I continued to eat the fries! lol 3 years ago

zbjg23For better health

Wow this one is going to be challenging. Especially at the beginning of this goal just remembering not to eat them needs to be in my head. I actually don’t eat fries as much as I used to, but I know they’re not good for me. I had Zaxby’s fries last week and they just didn’t taste exciting…which is a good thing that my taste buds are like hey you don’t need these, get away from that junk! 3 years ago
