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.

be a better drummer (read all 2 entries…)
kicking the s*** out of the drum set

i’m teaching myself to play drums, and i love it!! i just don’t get to practice enough… i really want to get better at it!



you’ll get better, try to get as much practice as you can. try youtube, just type in drum lessons, you can take it from there…. well feel free to contact me, this is new to me so you can just email me if you want,, i’m on myspace as well preach a.k.a the prophecy…. take it easy and keep swingin the sticks


The bad news is, I’ll be leaving the country very soon, to live abroad for a few years, and I’ll probably have to live in some cheap flat, where I don’t think my drums will be welcome. So, sadly, I’m considering the possibility of packing them up and leaving them here… :<


thats too bad, have you considered v-drums, by roland. digital but nice, and you can control the volume, you can even put headphones on if you like. let me know if your selling your set, i really need one… i hope you keep in touch, the link to my myspace page is:, long huh. i look forward to hearin from you….
