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.

Love Hope College. Still trying to figure out what to do with my life.

get back in touch with God
Hope College

My gut lead me to this place. I knew it was the right place for me to grow as a college student, as a christian, and to become a man. I attended the last gathering which is our sunday night service at the college. It was the final one of the year and it was there I reestablished my faith with god. I am sad to say I strayed from the path but happy to say that I am back on it.

learn to ballroom dance

Always wanted to be able to do this. I plan to try it out with Kelsey and I think through playing quarterback it will have helped me with footwork and timing and I hope to be able to hold my own on the dance floor someday.

kick butt in the school play
school play

i decided to do the winter play at my high school. it was my senior year and i figured i wanted to try new things. it ended up being one of the best experiences of my life. i met a ton of great people and got the chance to act. i loved every second of it and i’m very happy i gave it a shot. we sold a record number of tickets the second night of the play.

get my shoulder better
rehabin the throwing shoulder

i messed up my shoulder playing football and i wasn’t sure if i wanted to play once the season was over. i finished my senior year but i had to decide if i wanted to play college football. thanks to the wonderful people at capital therapy in Charlotte i am better and ready to take my game to the next level. thanks jim and heather, you guys are great.
