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.

watch all six episodes of Star Wars back to back

...maybe I’ll actually enjoy them because I won’t be so confused by what is going on =P

Drink at least one serving of Milk a day

My mum’s always made me take a mug of milk every morning and every evening for basically all my life…even though I can’t stand the stuff. My best friends all love it so whenever they sleep over it’s a running joke that I have to take my milk.

I marked it as worth doing because it keeps you healthy, and I dont mind it too much with cerial…when I drink the stuff I mostly just hold my breath and chug as fast as I can so I won’t taste it so much xD

scream at a moive theater during a scary movie

I went to watch ‘The Forgotten’ with my mates when it was out at the cinema. I loved the film, it’s one of my all time favourites.

We happened to be the only 6 people in the cinema. At one point a truck suddenly slams into the car the main characters are in and we got SUCH a fright I think even the guys might’ve made some noise – not sure, you couldn’t really hear much over the sound of us girls screaming xD

See all entries ...
