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.

Not sure

What I am going to add. But I plan to make it as impacting as possible. In a short story every word needs to count.

But I can happily say – I am near the finish line, so happy times ahead.


Less n 2K to go. Very happy indeed.


While looking at what I have completed so far for the story, I realised that some of it is missing. Unfortunately for me that means I will have to type it up again from scratch. Such is the ebbs and flow of life.

I just realised....

that I have had this goal on here for at least the last two years. This is terrible considering I have completed post graduate studies in creative writing. I will have to rectify this soon no matter what.


Over 500 words written today. Happy as a result :)


I have been writing the book in my head. But that’s about it at this stage.


Over half way now, and counting. Very happy so far.

Still not started yet this year.

But I will, you can be assured of that.


I need to get working on this, the year is almost up.


I have rekindled one story and today wrote 534 words for it. I have also planned how this story will go, so I should hopefully be able to successfully complete it.

I want to:
