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.

Getting closer than I ever thought, soon it should be true.


Endurance has increased but I still have a ways to go. Playing appregios has gotten much easier.


I can do a few solos of my that I couldn’t awhile ago. I am also working on other people’s kickass solos such as:
Megadeth- Symphony of Destruction, Tornado of Souls, Hangar 18
Judas Priest- Painkiller, Beyond the Realms of Death
Dragonforce- Valley of the Damned
Iron Maiden- Hallowed Be Thy Name, Trooper, Aces High, No More Lies, Age of Innocence
There’s more bands and songs but the names are escaping me.


progession is good, I practice hours each day and maybe things that were hard are becoming easier but still much to do.


a long way to go as some of the stuff I have written is extremely technical. But I have came miles above where I was and I also plan to have this goal close to finish a year and a half from now.
