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.

After Africa, this seems like the thing I have to do. Saying no only makes one miss out on things. Silke said today: Give it a chance. That’s how it is. Better to try something new than always do the same and get no inputs. It’s so hard, but maybe, maybe I can do it.
Showing initiative is a value. DO SOMETHING NEW. See new possibilities.


Still having trouble with that one girl.
Otherwise almost all invitations are accepted – it’s almost too easy now that school is over and I have no homework or assignments, just work.
I feel like I see more people than ever before … people are the only thing that matters.

Crashing at Ras's

A very productive goal, though I don’t always keep it in mind.
This Saturday, I accepted crashing my ex’s apartment with two of his friends whom I had only really talked to that very night. So easy to just do it.. a very nice experience.

Christmas shopping with Stine

Last week, I went Christmas shopping with a girl I’ve been admiring from afar. For three hours we talked and talked. Until then we’d only had talks in the bus – granted, those trips lasted half an hour each – and a few minutes at school, but this was so spontaneous, and yet I felt completely safe. I took time off for her – usually I’d have worried about school assignments.. She’s special.


I can think of one invitation I didn’t accept during the last few months – one to meet with an old school friend of mine. I guess I should have – but once I’m with her I’m always trying to find a way to worm out..
