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.

eat at the dinner table at least once weekly (read all 2 entries…)

Ok, so now i have a new table. The dining room looks like a dining room again, so hopefully i’ll try using it sometime soon !

Finish decorating the Utility Room

I realised that actually the thing that was bothering me most about this room was the peeling paint and cracks in the ceiling.

Woke up early this morning and by 7.30am was attaking the ceiling with sandpaper ! Filled the cracks in, painted with no crack ceiling paint and the whole place looks a hell of a lot better already ….its been bugging me for around 10 years or more, and took three hours to sort out ….DOH !

make a new friend (read all 2 entries…)

Have taken her up on the Ceroc, and its excellent, however givent he fact that we dance the whole time, i’m not sure it counts as being friends as we dont actually stop to speak …it may lead to more new friends though

See all entries ...
