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.

How to meet someone from 43things in real life



You refresh my spirit. ;) I feel like I need to be a better person to better deserve the awesome friends that I have.

I feel like I’ve got so much to learn from my friends. And I think that having friends that inspire you and people that you want to learn from…those are the best friends you can have.

Seeing the ocean for the first time was so exciting. I hope we get to reverse the situation when I take you to see the Falls. ;) I was almost feeling overwhelmed at just how vast the ocean is… Even seeing it from the beach. I don’t know if the Falls will give you the same impression… To me they are pretty standard by now, but they are considered a natural wonder. You’d better get your passport application going now!! We will walk over the border and see the view from the Canadian side. It is beautiful.

beauty11 have to keep alive that part of yourself that's rebellious

I already think...

you’re an amazing person! I had so much fun with you. It never felt weird for even a second. I feel like I’ve known you forever. Although, you probably think we are all insane now ;) lol.

Even witnessing you see the ocean for the first time was major for me. I know that sounds silly, but it’s quite like teaching my kids something new. I can’t really explain it. I’m dying to see the Falls. I actually had a dream about it recently! I don’t think I told you about it, but it was phenomenal! :D

I seriously think you are my officially travel buddy. There are so many amazing places we can go!!!!! EEEK!!!! Definitely one of our coolest goals thus far. So happy you helped me accomplish it!


Bilal Al-Bakri needs new plan

wish you happiness
