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.

learn a new song on piano
learn a new song on piano

I want to learn a new song on piano
‘cause I haven’t learn one for a couple of days
and that’s a very long time..

learn to recycle

We should be happy with this planet..
We should be thankfull for this planet..
We should take care for this planet..
so someone has to start with this!
I think it’s a great idea to start recycling
because I want that my grandchildren will have an
awesome time on this planet 2!
We should all learn to recycle
then the world shall be a better place to live.

work out

Think I’m getting a little lazy.. :(
I can’t let that happen
because I’m a dancer!
In a couple months we have a show so
I must train very hard now!

Fall in love

I’m not the kind of person who falls in love easily,
but it’s such a wonderful feeling;
all those butterflies,
always being nervous when he looks at my way,
being afraid to talk to him,..

I love that feeling!

live my dreams

I just want all my dreams to come true.
Life will be like a fairytale if that happens.


Prince charming ♥
I want to meet him so badly!
I don’t fall in love easily,
but maybe I can fall in love with him!
Wow that’d be great!

write a book

Appereantly a lot of people want to do this.
well it’s my dream to! :)

make someone proud

I don’t know how to do that.
Maybe I should try and get good graids,
Mum and dad should be realy proud then.
My exams start next monday.
That’s my chance to prove myself to the world.

be a better person

I want to be a better person,
I want to mean something to the world,
I want people to remember me as a smiling, helpful person.
but who wouldn’t want that? :)

Fight for equal rights.

Everyone deserves rights,
and nobody deserves more rights than someone else
(exept people with a handicap)
Imagine a world where everyone has the same rights.
It’d be a great place to live,
no wars,
everybody’d be happy,
no one would be sad or not good treated.
I sure would like to live in a world like that..

be beautiful

well who wouldn’t want to be beautiful?
I think that beauty opens more doors for you in life.
I don’t like that thought because I think that everyone should be treated equally,
but I’m not the one to decide stuff like that..
maybe I should fight more for rights for all people,
because everybody decerves respect and stuff.
Hmm maybe that’s a way to change someone’s life
(check my other goals).

Be myself

I care to much about what people think of me
I always try to be the perfect person but
sometimes I get realy tired of that.
so I wanna be me.
I am myself when I dance, play piano,...
I wanna be like that all the time
so I’m gonna try and be myself

live in the moment

I’m too much of a planner,
sometimes it’s realy stressing me out.
That’s why I want to live in the moment,
don’t think about tomorow.
Everything that matters is here and now.
I think that when I should think like this all the time
I’d be a more relaxed person

make my own choreography

I’m a dancer
I believe that dancing is why I exist,
it’s who I am.
when I dance, I’m myself and nobody else.
I should be like that all the time..
I want to make my own choreography
on all the songs that I picked out and
Making my own choreography is my little-babygirldream
Hope I can do this..

change someone's life

It’s my big dream to change someone’s life positively
It doesn’t matter what it is
but I must have done this in my life!
I want someone to be so happy that I came into his
or her life..
I don’t know how to do this;
maybe I should sepport some charity stuff
or something like that

not quitting to fast

I’ve just found out that I’m to much a quiter
I should stop doing that
I want to finish all of my goals
without giving up
that would be just great

write a song
write a song

I always wanted to write a song
and then play it on piano or guitar
I think it would give a great sattisfaction
when I sing the song I had just wrote..
I always start writing songs
but somehow I always quite
hmm.. maybe I’m to much a quiter
that should be another goal 2;
don’t quite to fast..
