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 completed my challenge and handed it in on time. Unfortunately I keep thinking what I could have done better, but whatever-it’s done now, all I have to think about is completing uni.:)


Trying to get back into the swing of things with this goal. I’ve been attempting to read a load of books on the subject, and that’s pretty much all I’ve done. I guess I need some sort of plan. At the moment I think I’m just gonna attempt to do at least 3 hours a day on this goal. So far I’ve possibly done two today but that was mainly writing the bibliography (lol) and reading one book and underling it. I’ll see if I can finish it today and then maybe type up my notes although that’s perhaps a bit ambitious. I’ll do an update in a bit.


I’ve managed to get out five books on my subject and at the local library I was able to order in a few things. Now I have to just read through a load of this stuff. I’ve already ‘written’ my bib, check out easybib -love it!


I’ve been looking up books that I need just got to figure out how I’m going to get them as their at a local uni’s library (not my own) they’re also in a London library but at the moment I’m not in London and not sure when I’ll be going back.


and I’m not sure it counts in the same way that other degrees do. But its still quite a big deal and the horrible draft I sent to my superviser was royally ripped apart. So I need to work on this a lot, worst part is where to start as the writing I has is a mess and I probably need to read a lot more, and its due in October. Aah…
