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.

Percy Jackson novels...

... are helping me with this goal! I tried re-reading old favourites but they are not as existing as reading new books. So I’m just going to keep searching for new good books. To achieve this goal, that’s the way to go!!


Two things that are helping me with this goal right now:-

1. Classics. Now I know why classics are… well, ‘classics’.

2. Light reading… at one time, I ‘looked down’ upon such books. I believed that books should serve some purpose. And that’s not a bad thing. But books with purpose are tiring me out right now. There’s so much going on my life, that I just don’t want to entertain ‘fictional people’s problems’ too!! I’m getting sucked into the world of light-hearted books!!

Getting nowhere with this goal :(

I’m trying but I’m not getting anywhere with this goal. I need some breakthrough with this one, gotta try harder!!


How’d I lose my passion for reading!!??? :( :( I haven’t been able to finish a book in ages and I’d rather waste time surfing the net aimlessly than read a book :O
So I picked up thrillers at my book club this time. Hope they’ll keep me turning the pages and help get back into a hobby I really miss ._.

Dhwani M has gotten 23 cheers on this goal.


I want to:
