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.

I forgot about this, but I am writing something everyday, even if it is small. I have a Journal and use writing as a tool for thinking. Now my goal is to write more shareable pieces of work, whatever length. 12 months ago

BoldAsLove6/19/11 - Why I Wrote this Letter

Hey you, don’t fake a fad
Wake up glad, go put on a sweater
Remember, a philosopher named Descartes
Then you’ll know why, I wrote this letter

Hey you, don’t go away
We were meant to stay here together
The women, who forget let wonder set in
Sell all their skin, and buy fake leather

Meanwhile, sleeping on a plane, it’s not the same
You’ll marry the girl who rubs your shoulders
And we’ll do it now, a car full before we finish school
Why wait, like this world, we’ll just get older

Hey you, please don’t frown
You wear a crown now and forever
Remember, a philosopher named Descartes
Then you’ll know why, I wrote this letter

[This is kinda silly but I found a writing exercise online called Rock n Rhyme. Can you guess the song I used? Can you guess who I wrote it for? As silly as it felt, it felt good. I usually take myself way too seriously when it comes to writing. I’m happy with the results and happy I wrote something today…with a little help from my friends. ;) I couldn’t get the third stanza/third line to flow at all.]

Hey you, I love you! 3 years ago


For some reason it just seemed right to start writing anything right now. My mind is clear and my heart is light. And thus may they remain. I’ve been learning how to pray. Not sure to whom yet. Today I sat there in silence (if you don’t count the construction racket and the jabbering in my head) and talked to someone. Asked for an auspicious day – I have a feeling that important things are on the way – thanked for yesterday’s blissful day. That’s how I feel right now, filled with bliss. The day is colorful, blue sky and bright yellow sun, there’s some delicious mediterranean freshness in the air, a cool, flower scented breeze. I feel enlightened. 3 years ago

littlemissfickle2Pleased with this one

Let’s say it’s not exactly artistic writing (which I intend to work on), but basically I’ve been writing something everyday. Whether it’s working on my class portfolios or in my journal or even on 43 things. Writing has been coming much more easily, thankfully. ;) 3 years ago
