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.

Be a better friend

I’m trying with this one, I really am. I realised just how much I do depend on my friends and just how good they can be in times of meed. Its easy to take friends for granted but when you loose a friend as I have done recently you tend to notice the ones that are still there. So far I’ve managed to see all of my best friends at least once during the last half term and I’m tryin to keep it up.


Im not sure if this goal should be ‘have better friends’ but for the good friends that I do have I want give more back. I want to actually get my friends thought out, wrapped birthday presents rather than them picking it out and me buying it. I want to enjoy the last 4 months before we dissappear for uni, I want to remember the good times, and never forget them. I want friends that listen rather than talk, so I can do the same. I want to have better friends so that I can be one too.
