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.

ethanunzicker is doing 30 things including…

listen to all the joy electric albums in my itunes


ethanunzicker has written 3 entries about this goal


I haven’t really been doing this consistently, like one album a week, or anything like that. But I’ve listened to a lot. I’ve gotten a lot of good music recently and I’ve been listening to those consistently.
I got the new Blessed By a Broken Heart (which I plan on buying as soon as it comes out) and a bunch of Living Sacrifice stuff.
I’ll knock this goal out soon enough though. I love JE


I listened to the first of 17 JE albums all at once on Sunday. I was gonna listen to one a week cuz I figured I wouldn’t have time to sit down and listen to a whole album all at once. But I was IMing my mom on Sunday and listened to this weeks album all at once. Ah well….
I’ll just listen to this one over and over this week. Cuz it’s really good.

cheers, kyle again

Kyle gave me a lot of his not-secular music over Thanksgiving break and I just realized I now have a whole freaking lot of Joy Electric. I love JE and now I have a lot of it! I think I’m gonna make a point to listen to one album a week. It says I have 17 albums but 4 of those are actually just single songs so I can throw those in with other albums. I have 13 weeks of Masters left. So by the time I listen to all the albums, I’ll be done! WOOHOO!!
This is gonna be a fun goal. I cold just listen to all of them today but you can’t have too much of a good thing. Plus, 10.8 hours of synth pop could make my ears bleed.


I want to:
