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.

Visit Berlin

Berlin is a fantastic city I had the pleasure to visit. I had a great week there and enjoyed its great art,history and people.
I rented a room in a hotel at Kurfürstendamm a very nice, tidy street. It was full of shops and the subway took you all over the city.
I was astonished by the wonderful Potsdamer platz and by the great Brandenburgen door.
You must visit the Zoo, it is the biggest in Europe and there are so many animals, they look healty and like they are in their natural habitat, it is really a great show.
I went there in November and the weather was very cold, it was not snowing, but it was cold. Anyhow, with some winter clothes you could walk around the city and not even feel it.
People in Berlin are very polite and they all speak English, if you ask any information most of the times you’ll get answered with kindness.

I hope to go back in Berlin one day, it was definitely one of my favourite places.

learn how to organize projects on springpad

Springpad is a great tool if you need to organize not only your daily schedule, but to save notes, to save some random idea, a video you found on the internet, an interesting website.
Since I found out about springpad I never stopped using it, and I became quite good with its mechanism.

get corrective eye surgery or lasik

Well, I am not yet the “right” age to do it, I’m still 20 and have to wait some more years. I like myself in glasses, it’s not much of an appearence problem, it’s more that I always feel like I’m carrying weight when I wear them. I dislike them and when I wear contacts I feel like in Heaven gaining 360° sight.

Can’t wait to get this!
