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 Japanese

Minored in it in college; semi-fluent in it currently… but the fact that I don’t use it on a daily basis makes me feel that it’s getting worse and worse, and I’m forgetting more and more. Doesn’t help that I want to start learning Spanish again, and there’s only so much space in your head you can fill w/ foreign langauges before they get confusing!

Learn Spanish

Learned it for a few years in high school, forgot most of it… But now I really want to pick it up again. Good thing is a lot of people speak Spanish at work, so I can easily practice it with them :)

Fall in love

I don’t have a big circle of friends and I don’t get to meet too many new people in my daily life, but this has been a goal of mine for awhile. I’ve just never really met anyone who actually makes me feel that way? And when someone likes me, I find that I don’t really like them… and vice versa. I think it’s just a matter of time before I find someone who I actually like, or that’s what I hope anyway…


I want to:
