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.

visit stonehenge

I want to visit England and make a special trip to Stonehenge. I’ve already visited the Mayan ruins and the Giza pyramids. Stonehenge fits in with these huge structures.

cruise across the Atlantic on a cunard ship
Like the Titanic should have done

I want to cruise across the Atlantic from London to New York in April 2012 like the Titanic should have done. I hope to sail on A Cunard luxury liner just for the experience.

Get my RN
One step at a time

I’ve completed the LPN program at a local college and will be taking my State board exam on February 18, 2008. I’ve applied for the RM program, but have not heard if I have been accepted as yet. If so, I will start in August 2008 and graduate in May of 2009.
