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.

next step

continue with lessons. and start watching tennis games on TV!


Last Sunday was a fantastic game. My backhand (which was quite bad for some time) hardly missed gave great shots back. My forehand was not to shabby either. No wonder for the game I was tied with my trainer. I can officially say I can now play tennis. But I’m driven to be a better player so the lessons won’t stop soon.


I basically know the basics. Now I just need someone to play with. Everyone is into badminton. Grr!!!

oh and cute outfits!

I should start buying cute tennis outfits =)

sorta played

I’m in my 6th or is it 7th lesson now. I’ve actually played already. My forehand has improved. My form for the groundstrokes not too great yet but my volley is pretty good. My serve is also pretty okay. Two more lessons, well, make it four since i wanna be good, and I can start playing with friends!

one step

just had my first lesson last Saturday. The guy taught me the proper form for the forehand and the backhand. I had a hard time hitting the ball with the backhand! My second lesson is this coming Sat. I hope I will then get to play!


I am gonna try to do this this coming weekend. I’ll bum someone’s racket and head to the club. I’ll only buy my own raket if I like it and if I see it’s something I can do often. I’ll just charm the people to teach me. hehe!
