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.

A_butterfly_kissMarking my goals as done or removing some of them

Before this site is not available anymore. I am still committed to this site and my goals you see :-)

I am ticking the goal as done that are in progress like this goal. I have done some work on this goal. Although it is not completed it will be done by the end of this year and the things I have done is already enough to be used upon my death. But want to secure it by completing the whole progress.

About the goals I remove, I believe it will take a while to complete them as done. Hence I gave up on them on 43t. But not giving up on them completely.

I will update the ones which are already on my list soon and mark them as done too once I update them. 1 day ago

A_butterfly_kissThanks for sharing this info

I was actually looking for your comment under ted talks goal of mine. But I posted it under documentaries goal by mistake :) Yes the images were back but unfortunately we couldn’t save the site :( Actually when the images were back I thought there was a hope for this site to continue.

I enjoyed my time here on 43t immensely. 43 has helped me to achieve lots of different things. Easy or difficult and added some spice in my life other than the things I have in outside life. I also must mention that I will miss every member of this site whose shared their experiences and their entries that I read.

And, thanks again for your comment.

Take care and good luck with your goals in the future. 1 day ago

A_butterfly_kissPeach tree

I saw this beautiful but small peach tree during my holiday last week. It excites me to see trees with fruits growing on them. I also struggle to understand why the trees give lots of fruit have to be small?! 3 days ago

A_butterfly_kissGrow potatoes in a bag

I have just came across with this on the internet now. I would never have thought of this in a million years time. Such a great idea :-) I wonder if I can grow anything else in a bag? 3 days ago

A_butterfly_kissHöstsonaten - Autumn Sonata

I watched this Swedish movie yesterday. Daughter – Mother melodrama with Ingrid Bergman in it. It actually made me think a lot about things relate to my life. Not exactly in the same sense but in different ways. Like how I was right with my choices in life etc.

Anyway, great storyline with great acting skills from the mither and daughter both. 3 days ago

A_butterfly_kissMormonism and Joseph Smith

I heard of Mormonism on a ted talk today and wanted to know more about it. And Joseph Smith was an American religious leader who founded the Latter Day Saint movement, of which the predominant branch is Mormonism. 3 days ago


These are the Ted talks I listened to before my holiday. Plus it is good to see 43t is still here :-)

11- Alessandro Acquisti – Why privacy matters
12- Adam Savage – How simple ideas lead to scientific discoveries
13- Simon Anhold – Which country does the most good for the world
14- Kevin Briggs – The bridge between suicide and life
15- Leyla Acaroglu – Paper beats plastic?
16- Sir Ken Robinson – How schools kill creativity 1 week ago


This may well be my last entry on 43t. The photos and images do not show here today. This could just be the meaning of last day of it. They may shut it any minute now. It feels like I am losing one of my best friend :-(

Here we go it is what it is. These are the ted talks I watched this week.

- Alessandro Acquisti – Why privacy matters
- Adam Savage – How simple ideas lead to scientific discoveries
- Simon Anholt – Which country does the most good for the world 3 weeks ago

A_butterfly_kissThe Spirit of Lake Baikal - Largest lake of the World

Short but very cultural and informative documentary about the lake. I enjoyed it. 3 weeks ago

A_butterfly_kiss32. Amigos tequila flavoured beer

I tried this beer this week. But I didn’t like it at all. It is too sweet for my liking (much more sweeter than how shandy would be) and I didn’t taste tequila in it. I could only have a couple of sips of it. And that was it for me. 3 weeks ago
