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.

Stop raging when I see someone on tv who is completely and utterly talentless
There are so many...

...utterly and completely talentless people on the box and it drives me wild. Why are they there? What can they do? Can they sing, dance, act, tell jokes? No!!!!! So why are they there filling up the schedules and basically being oxygen stealers? I need to accept that there is a total dumbing down of the media and just get on with enjoying life.



Walk in nature everyday
Untitled

This is doable because I live in a town with plenty of greenery. Every day I’m out and about, I’m going to commit to walking amid nature.



listen more to prog-rock bands
Untitled

I love prog rock and in 2009 I want to concentrate on getting to know and hear as many Prog Rock bands and albums as I can.
