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.

I know I can’t cook any decent stuff like youguys. But I did start a bit on this goal this week. I cooked rice on Monday.

... Just rice.

& Pasta on Tuesday.

I added like sweetcorn to pasta. But that doesn’t really count as cooking.

Still. I don’t think I did terribly for a lazy person such as myself? Goodbye Takeaways x


I watched Pasta be cooked today. Didn’t enter into the ring at all. Because… I could like.. lose an arm or something…

Really made nothing.

I’ve cooked nothing since starting this goal!

Damn my love of ready meals!!! They are so bad for me!!



Didn’t cook any rice. I am lame. I microwave all that I own.

Some one please tell me off.

I might try cooking some rice today. If I remember.
Nothing fancy, because lets face it, I’d just screw that up =/

May actually have to learn first...

Yeah, Can’t really cook at all…

Pot noodle is pretty much what I rely on. Well, in light of being healthier. I guess its time to learn!
