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.

find 43 people with storage units to start our own co-operative storage space

I just realized that I have spent over $7,000 dollars on storage and it is only going to get worse. My wifes mother nad grandmother just passed away and we are inheriting three big ass u-haul full of antique furniture , hand blown glass, art work and other family stuff (her grandmother was the last remaining of five siblings{none of whom had children} so that is five households funneled down to one) including silver setting for fifty and five sets of china). Thank god my brother has a big ‘ol barn in oregon that we can store the stuff for a while but I can’t impose on him forever. This got me thinking though if I can find twenty or more people who feel that they will have a permanent need for storage we should get together buy a vacant lot throw up a steel building and chip in mortgage money. It would be cheaper then renting and we could probably pay it off faster. this would also work well for folks with campers or boats. any one interested in starting this in the seattle area?


I want to:
