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.

PinkAmaryllisTime to cross this one off

I tried a few different techniques but either I had not current problem to solve OR trying the different techniques did not help when I did have a problem. Worth a try though 3 weeks ago

PinkAmaryllisGiven up

I haven’t had any real income for 7 months – and almost at the end of savings. Not sure how you are meant to budget with no money coming in. 3 weeks ago

I came home and found my partner had arranged a huge rubbish removal. Still enjoying the tidiness weeks later. 3 weeks ago


I got some temp worked and used the money to pay for an eye test and new glasses and lens. Much more comfortable than the last lot. It seems that the previous optometrist might have messed up the prescription – knew there was a reason I didn’t go back there 3 weeks ago

PinkAmaryllisGiven the all clear

Teeth in good condition despite absence from the dentist. The first bit of good news in a tough year. 3 weeks ago

PinkAmaryllisYes, I can sign this one off

As I have been job hunting for months, I am quite familiar with what I have and haven’t achieved. But its worth doing to capture the stuff that perhaps doesn’t make it onto a cv – like being a good friend, helping family, caring for animals in need etc 3 weeks ago

PinkAmaryllisStopped trying

So what, I am an overbreather. Made worse by asthma and allergies to grass, dust and cat fur. All I plan to do know that I know what the problem is….is take my medication regularly and stop stressing about it. 3 weeks ago

PinkAmaryllisRest in Peace

The wee fellow just keep losing weight although looking bright. Then got a respiratory infection which the vet treated with antibiotics but no time for them to work. The vet thinks there must have been sometime else going on internally. Dear little hedge. 5 months ago

PinkAmaryllisDancing and my favourite music tracks

Great fun and better still free! 5 months ago


Waitangi the hedgehog arrived on Waitangi Day…under the weather and smelly and mangey. Bathed, relieved of ummm….’passengers’, feed, watered and tucked up safe and sound. Is making good progress. Vet treatment for the mange. Very cute. 5 months ago


It is time consuming alright…but have an interview on Monday so fingers crossed! 5 months ago


Very happy though it was not as easy as expected. Not addictive just a few ‘withdrawal symptoms’ which made me abit light headed for a few days. 5 months ago

PinkAmaryllisI agree!

It takes heaps of time – not sure if its worth it if time is a problem. For me, at the moment, I am ‘between jobs’ and the extra cash is helping alittle. 5 months ago

PinkAmaryllisGoals for tomorrow

  • Ring doctor to get a green prescription and diet support
  • Clear table so eating at the table is an attractive option
  • Continue to drink bottled water
  • Buy some good grain bread from the supermarket
  • Eat breakfast even if it kills me 5 months ago

PinkAmaryllisonce again, from the beginning

I really need to get my weight down and my fitness up. This is a huge issue for me (scuse the pun).

Reasons I want to lose weight (written down to remind me when my moral fibre grows weak)

1. To look better and feel better about myself
2. To feel comfortable in my body
3. To feel better when people take photographs of me
4. To ensure I don’t miss out on work opportunities by looking too big
5. To have a wider selection of clothes to choose from when shopping
6. To weigh less than my boyfriend (that’s an embarrassing one)
7. To have more energy
8. To show myself that I can do self denial.
9. To avoid heart disease, stroke etc – yes, yes…this should be at the top of the list, but its not.
10. I will leave this blank…but come up with something soon

Reasons to get fit
1. To help lose weight
2. To see if I can get back into dance
3. To be fit enough to handle what life throws at me. 5 months ago

PinkAmaryllisApplication sent....
