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.

Get 20 stamps in my passport

17 cheers


Apolonia has written 3 entries about this goal

I've finally gotten my second one.

My second stamp is from Nassau in the Bahamas. Only 18 more to go, I’m really going to have to get planning if I’m going to make this goal. My passport expires in 2012. Now that I’m thinking about it, thats more than three international trips a year. It doesn’t seem very doable to me, but we’ll see.

Thinking about planning a trip

Not sure where yet.. maybe Bermuda or the Turks and Caicos.

This will be an extremely tough one

So far I have 1 stamp it is from Toronto, Ontario Canada.
I might do a multi-city European trip in 2008, but thats all I have planned for now.

Apolonia has gotten 17 cheers on this goal.


I want to:
