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.

TangerineRose we can do anything!

work out why

Inspired by one of my friends, I had the idea to look at each of my goals and think about the reasons behind them.

I think it will help me want to achieve them sooner!


Hoffy I guess they are not shutting down this site after all?


more ore the stronger reasons you have for doing one thing or reaching a goal, the more motivation you have: as simple as that!:)

This reminds me of an article I saw recently

which suggested to create to do lists in the forms of questions.

The article is here:

I use Wunderlist to manage my to do’s because I can access from the web and also from my Android phone. (However, for some reason, I noticed subtasks are not able to be checked off in the web version.) Anyway, my to do list is 120 items. Sighhh. That’s not including the items which I decided to separate into a “free time” list as something to do when I have free time…
