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.

best thing i did this year

this was a serious goal of mine, so glad i did it. i sold my tv, bought a DLP projector. life quality improved 1000%. a dvd player + surround sound costs maybe $60. that’s how much my i sold my 6 year old lame TV for. yes the projector it’s an expense but i am a film fanatic so that’s my only luxury. and… the end result it’s amazing. takes up no space and yet i have a little cinema at home. and when i move, i’ll be carrying only a few lb’s with me not some giant screen TV which cost $9000 (to get that size it would have to be!). anyway nothing bad to say, this is the way to go. i don’t even have a screen and the quality is amazing. i can’t believe it. i went to a friend’s house and i could not tolerate the tiny TV screen and it was a big TV.


I want to:
