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.

grow a pineapple (read all 5 entries…)
still doing fine

The pineapple plant is doing really well, has continued to grow, apparently another year before it starts beginning to produce a fruit.



get to 59kg by Sept 19
currently 63.3

have lost 1.5kg in the last week through exercise and starting to eat clean. A kilo a week is definitely do-able and I used to be this weight before. I’d be really happy to be sub-60kg again!



secret, gonna take a few years, really hope it works out goal (read all 2 entries…)
Things are slowly falling into place!!

Over the last year I have slowly worked on this goal – have done a couple of courses, met with an expert in the field, and generally confirming it could be a really good option.

The next part… I need seriously start saving some money. I am hoping it will be a bit easier now I have a goal and some real motivation to make it happen
