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 think I'm stepping foward but to where?

dye my hair blue and black

got blue dreadys instead

start excercising regularly

right! i am aiming to wake up 5am every morning for 6 days a week and go for a run! speeds metabolism and wakes me up with a positive outlook for the rest of the day and hopefully get my body into fat burning mode the whole day. gosh!! i need to stop being a lazy gross slob


get my septum pierced

this was when I was 15 and lied to the peircer I was 17 bahaha, but it indeed was very worth it, especially when its done by a professional that knows what their doing. The first time I went to “essential Beauty” and they did a terrible job, I had to take it out, wait for it to heal and then re-peirce it(obviously at another place).

design my own tattoo

i would only get a tattoo if

1. i designed it

2. it means something valuable to me

3. if i love it and

4. if the meaning to me will never expire

problem is i dont know what to get, and havnt even started designing it >.>

Learn to play keyboard
oppurtunity wasted

i have had a good keyboard since 11, and not touched it in a looong while. I can play a few songs, but i can’t read notes,self-taught. ITS REALLY BAD I NEED TO ENRICH THE QUALITY OF MY LIFE and talents.

practice better time management.
time is valuable

Bought a new diary

jotting down important tasks for the next day

DOING what was planned

and NOT be a lazy ugly human >=[

Do homework the day I get it

I will be starting 2nd year of Uni soon, must not procastinate everything I recieve! ><

no procastinating uni work
cant afford to waste time

I do design at Uni, and it takes up ALOT of time and planning. If I just try to squeeze soo much in a short time (cramming) then I wont produce high marks, and I’m sick of my marks ranging from skimming a pass and low 70’s. I want to be a consistent high distinction for goodness sake!! I hate feeling bland and ordinary. Bah!! So I know if I use my time wisely and strategically I can improve the quality of my work =D
