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.

tidying up paperchase is exhausting but it always looks good! doesnt realy count but im going to bring in some items that i dont use for the guide dog appeal.

i must think of something else to do for this!!


this is a hard goal!! well i picked up a book in borders and put it back on the shelf, did all of my flatmates washing up(although i partly did this because i stole some milk :S ),tidied and took the rubbish out.

this isnt great but its something i guess


theres an application called greenbook, and save electricity & CO2 somehow.

im leaving my facebook a little better( or the world anyway)

zebra crossings

i always lift my hand as a gesture to cars who stop on zebra crossings so i can cross. i know every one is meant to but some dont. if you acknowledge their good deed they are happier and more likely to stop for others( i know i do).. and youve left crossings and the roads abit better!! this does count!!im not talking rubbish! :-)

going slowly

i havent realy found things big to do. i pick random bits of litter up, put things back in the supermarket in the right place and do the washing up for my flatmate.
what have u guys been doing???
