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.

i recently moved and wanted to try and tick this goal off my list. i must have thrown half of my possessions out, alot of stuff i was keeping thinking it may be sentimental to me, but wasnt realy. the only thing i had problem with was my clothes because i kept saying, i may wear it when it gets warmer etc…
ive taken alot of stuff with me to my new flat and have decided anything that doest get worn or used here will be thrown out! nearly everything i own now i either realy love and dont want to give up or i use/wear regulary.
funnily enough, i dont miss the stuff that i did give away, so oviously i didnt need any of it in the first place, but it did show me how much stuff i did have!!! phew!


this weekend to go home, so i need to plan what i absolutely cannot live without/what can be left at the end/ what i need to travel to lapland with/ wht i love and cherish/ gifts frm finland

its gona be a hard w/e but i will be getting rid of lots of unnessacary items.
