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.

getting there! def. within site

have recently passed the $30000 mark. it’s a mix of RRSP’s (same as 401K’s for my American friends) cash and mutual funds. I’ll keep on going and I’lm sure i’ll hit my goal in a few years.



Hike to the Chris McCandless Bus
for all the wayward travellers out there...

Loved the movie, loved the soundtrack, love to travel, loved McCandless’ spirit. Seems like a whorth while trip to me!



see the Boston Bruins win the stanley cup (read all 2 entries…)
They did it!

Surreal feeling really. So happy that they were able to pull through and take it home :)!!! I hope every hardcore fan gets to experience a championship at some point in their lifetime cause it’s an awesome feeling! Except the Habs of course, those SOB’s can eat sh*t!
