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.

take advantage of my "magic" time

ixykThe ever changing goal...

I love that magic feeling thats in the air at dusk. The day is over and the night is just about to begin and you don’t know what is going to unfold but its exciting.
This goal is all about that feeling.
When I first added this goal to my list it was about starting a new job, exploring a few options in my life and feeling like I was at the brink of something new and different. Little did I know how different it would be. All of this was before B and I started talking again and I decided to move here.
At the time I thought that the “magic” feeling was only going to last for a short time. Now I see that its an ongoing thing. As long as I have hopes and dreams I am always on the verge of something new. I’m marking this goal done because I think I have now found magic in my everyday life! 8 years ago

ixykIs it possible...

that my “magic” time could last for the rest of my life???
I feel like something in me has opened up and the world feels different. I’m happy – and that definitely qualifies as magic! 8 years ago

ixykThis may be the end...

of the magic and the beginning of a new kind of reality. I am on the brink of a major change here. Its exciting! 8 years ago

ixykWow...this goal has changed entirely...

When I started this goal it was about a specific feeling that I was having. A feeling that I had forgotten until someone close to me described having that feeling…it helped me to rediscover it.
Now the meaning of this goal has shifted. I have new magic in my life – and yes, this one is a secret too.
The good things in life often carry some bad along with them. This thing is no exception. I need to face up to some of those bad things, and have some honest conversations with a couple of people. I need to come clean. Then, once that is done, all will be revealed here! 8 years ago


Can be found in the brief moment between the end of one thing and the beginning of another. 8 years ago

ixykI'm not telling what it is yet...

I am still experiencing my “magic time” but I’ve been taking it for granted a little lately. I’m not going to be able to get away with it forever… 8 years ago

ixykSounds mysterious...

Well. It is a bit mysterious. I’m not sure if I’m ready to share my secret about this yet. 8 years ago
