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.

Ok so

I went to get the license and now Im just waiting for it in the mail, So Im just going to check this as done. Im really proud of myself. I have proved to myself more than once that If I put my mind to something that I can do it. I cant believe I have my license!! Now its time to get that car Ive been saving for. :) Good Luck everyone!


I’m getting my license next week hopefully! If i pass the test. I’m already looking for a car and there is just some loose ends that need to be tied. I plan to have it before this month is over though and definitely before my 19th birthday!


I have resorted to Driver’s Ed..wish me luck.


I haven’t made any progress on this goal. I dont think I will master this anytime soon. :(

This Goal.

Will be my New year’s resolution.


I went driving with my friend today. It went really well and I wasnt that nervous. But i really need to work on paying attention to what’s happening around me and to my signals and stuff. I dont think I’ll be ready to drive by myself for awhile though lol, I want to get my drivers license this year!


It seems like i will never learn how to drive! It sucks. I know it will be a hard goal because i havent even learned to DRIVE yet!! But anyway i was supposed to go yesterday because it was a holiday and everything would be closed and all the parking lots would be empty for me to use. So anyway hopefully i will go sometime soon because i want to get my license so i can get a freaking car! :D


First i need to learn how to DRIVE! Everybody in the world drives and i cant. Im just so darn retarded that i dont even know some directions. I need to get my license so i can start driving to school and stop acting like a damn baby. Im spoiled and im used to being drove everywhere but now im 17 and its time to learn!

Jessica has gotten 7 cheers on this goal.


I want to:
