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.

brassedoff69Can't Believe I Let It Go So Long!!

It’s done! Wasn’t that bad. Why I let it overwhelm me for so long I don’t know.

I’ve been doing great at tidying up everyday because I don’t want to go back to the clutter that was.

What motivated me was that I started to read The Happiness Project. Makes me very happy going to bed each night to a clean room.

Now I need to tackle the closet!! 9 months ago

dthancock28found a starting point...

Started with the laundry today; just chucked it all out the bedroom door to get it out of the room. Can actually see some of the floor now in places! 9 months ago

brassedoff69I actually got a little done on this today!

Little being the key word. However, just straightening and vacuuming goes along way. 11 months ago

MissClaireeeVery happy

In a few days, doing just a bit at a time, I am starting to see results. Still there is much to get rid of, but it’s starting to come together. 11 months ago

MissClaireeeThis is taking forEVER

I got everything against one wall organized and in its place. Wow, there’s actually FLOOR under there for a change. It is so difficult to go through all these family photos when I was actually PART of the family. But past is past, and gone is gone. Tomorrow I might try to expose another wall pile. 11 months ago


Though my linens stay clean, everything else is a pile of crap that I need to separate between my ex-husbands’s stuff and mine. I’ve been procrastinating due to a broken heart, but I just can’t continue to live like a hoarder. Everything else in the house is immaculate except for my quarters and the laundry room. I keep the house nice because it’s run as a B & B. Time to treat myself the way I treat my guests! 11 months ago

EliezerCleaning the bedroom...

...It may seem like a silly “goal”, but, for me, it isn’t. I’ve left the things in my bedroom the same way since a couple (maybe more) years. Of course I clean it, but, I refer about having the bed/drawers, movable lamps in the same position… Not adding any different stuff, like a framed photo, or painting the walls… And so on. I need to change the way my bedroom currently is: To express my current personality, to express my current way of seeing LIFE… To express the way I wanna improve every single day… And, also to have a space to sleep, cuddle with my partner, have sex when possible, and, above it all… Relax myself. Make my bedroom my “headquarters”, where I can take some quality sleep every night… And then, waking up feeling I’m able to conquer all my dreams, all my fears, and all my desires.

Cleaning isn’t brooming only. ;) Cleaning it’s all about making it a different place, so you can feel better, and be better overall. 12 months ago

DeanTidying it up

Started with mopping up the hardwood floor with a mixture of water and cleaning vinegar. The worst part is under the bed where all the dust collected but I managed to make it shiny and spotless. I then dumped the basket of old clothes into the laundry. Sorted out all the junk lying on the chairs near the stairs into the proper places. Took off all the bed sheets, pillow covers, and blankets from 3 beds to be washed and dried in the laundry as well. At last, I collapsed onto the couch with a sigh of relief. 15 months ago

DeanCluttered floor

The first thing I want to see when I go upstairs is a cozy, warm bedroom where I can unwind and relax. Today, I picked up all the papers, containers, and junk lying around on the floor. Oh, it made a huge difference. Still more to go but it’s a start. 15 months ago

On seas less hideously sereneActually working on this.

I worked on this a few weeks ago and made quite a bit of progress. I gave away a garbage bag full of clothes and donated a large box of books to the library’s used-book store. Then I threw away three more bags of stuff. My bedroom looks very different now, but there’s still plenty to do! 2 years ago
