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.

sleep under the stars with the love of my life

We travelled far from the city life. We lay down on the ground in my sleeping bag and just stared up at the gorgeous stars that we could never see in the city. I felt so happy listening to music and staring at the stars with the man I love. I don’t know about him, but I fell asleep on his arm and felt very fulfilled.

Azores82Did this many times

back in my teenage years with my sweetheart…though that didn’t last past 4 years, we made magical memories. Guess it wasn’t so magical after all lol! 6 years ago


To spend the night with THE ONE and it just be … us. That is paradise. Making love with nothing but a blanket on the ground, the trees around us and the stars above us. I need to find that person. 6 years ago

Spring is on it’s way. Hopefully I’ll be able to accomplish this before too long. 6 years ago


Now that I think about it, I have done this. We slept in the back of my pickup on a trail ride, but I would like to do it again when it’s warmer and we don’t have to be bundled up with a sleeping bag all the way over our heads. Not going to happen for a while yet. I don’t think 10-20 degree weather is conducive for this goal, but maybe next summer. 7 years ago
