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 there...

i’m still with CASE, though i want to increase my participation level. i actually lead an interview last time. i’m also a member of SCF which is an org in my province of PNG which hopes to help sick children there to have access to treatment and to good treatment.

i’m incraesing my activeness slowley. i’ve also started becoming more active with amnesty. my sit back and read the emails they forward me has moved on to attending a meeting and actually knowing what i can do and signing on to do a couple of things for them. i hope my participation only increases.

i’ve also got in touch with an org regarding my support of self-determination in west papua and have planned- entries under that goal.

now i really want to commit mysef to what i’ve started and only make those commitments grow.

refugee aid

I’ve gone and sat through interviews with refugees seeking legal aid to get a fair idea of what’s going on & just done minor things to help. In a few weeks however I’ve actually been allocated a case with another volunteer to work on involving the ‘family reunion project’, so am looking forward to that. Some of the people who do this have an amazing level of commitment to the cause, it’s great!


I just want to do good, to be a decent person and help as many people as I can. I’ve recently volunteered with this organisation to help refugees obtain temporary & hopefully permenant visa’s here in Aus. I’ll be putting my limited legal knowledge to use. That’s a start.

NiuginiGold has gotten 9 cheers on this goal.
