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.

travel alone

Just came back from a 5 day trip to Hong Kong. Went there alone and thoroughly enjoyed myself even though it was my first time there and I do not know the local language.

Somehow almost everybody I knew was quite shocked that I actually travelled alone. But what’s the big deal?? This was not the first time I travelled alone. I had travelled to Taiwan alone too.

Although it is slightly more expensive to travel alone, I love the freedom of doing whatever I feel like doing. Rather than have to compromise with other pp on where to go and where to eat.

Anyway, people who intend to travel and like to explore on their own without taking tours, one good website I can recommend is The forums were really really helpful in my research.


I want to:
