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.

i think last semester was my most productive semester even though i got the lowest grades since beginning college… however i know i can do even better. this semester i will see


so school is about to start. this summer i’ve been trying to get rid of all the time consuming yet pointless things i use to do-play video games and browse feeds on the internet have been a big problem. i’ve stopped playing video games pretty much but i substituted that in by acquiring two new tv shows i must now follow—the office and 24. luckily i’m still on the 4th season of 24 so i won’t be able to follow this next season until i finish the rest but…. still will be time consuming
i’m hoping i’ll waste less time and spend more time studying or doing more useful hobbies… we’ll see how this goes two months into school
