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.

Get an iPhone
Got a Samsung instead!

I waited for 4 years to get my first smartphone hoping the iphone 5 would be awesome but in the end I decided that the Samsung Galaxy S3 was MUCH better :)



learn how to drive stick-shift
Easier than I thought

Just need practise and a good and patient teacher. Still need to learn to reverse and park but for basic driving I learnt it pretty quickly (already knew how to drive an auto).



learn to ski
Believe and achieve

I first learned to ski 20 years ago when I was a kid and was very unsuccessful. I tried again and it turned out to be MUCH easier than I expected. I did not fall down once and can’t wait to continue doing it :)
