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.

Found a band

We had our first meeting tonight & discussed songs we would start with.. We have our first rehearsal next week. Whoo!

I wonder

Should i even have this goal.. I actually cant think of how it would be possible for me to have enough time to be in a band if all my other plans actually come together.. i guess its just something id like to try and do on the side..just have a cover band and reherse like once a week and gig a few times a year even if its just for parties of people we know.. maybe i should put an add on gumtree??


This could actually happen, I’m meeting a guy this week about starting a punk band which is good cause I’m real pissed off about shit & I’m just a ill bit weird.. But perhaps I want fame to much to be punk? Not that I care I’m going for it anyway!


the last week has only made me want this more. I’ve been lucky enough to see oasis and the foo fighters this week and will be going to homebake tomorrow. AAAAHHHH. I want to be up there

rainbowscorpion has gotten 6 cheers on this goal.
