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.

Let go of some goals that no longer appeal to me!
OK, I am going to get rid of three goals on my 43things that no longer appeal to me!

Here goes…I am getting rid of three goals that no longer appeal to me. Isn’t it interesting how that can happen? Something I used to think I wanted to accomplish takes a back seat to a newer goal? I think that is a good thing. And, letting go is a good thing, too.


Trauma_Junkie ready for recovery week, and data pushing.


I took a breather from 43things and came back 16 months later and my old goals looked a wee bit old…. and odd…. :)

kepi procrastination extraordinaire!

Here Here!

It’s been over three years since I first joined and I know that there are some things that are just lying around because I never wanted to use the term “give up”.
.. But you’re right, there’s nothing wrong with letting go .. and I should embrace the fact that I don’t want to do the same things I did three years ago!
Hadn’t really thought about it like that before .. so thanks :)
