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.

The Brothers Bloom – entertaining, original but a bit over-complex. 5 months ago


Made in Dagenham – really uplifting film, good performances. 7 months ago


Taken at the Thames in March 7 months ago


L’Homee du Train – very good film, rather strange ending
Cool Hand Luke – finally filled this shameful gap in my film education – awesome film. 7 months ago

kaydee25Jeeves and the Feudal Spirit

10/10, classic Bertie with old favourites such as Aunt Dahlia, Stilton Cheesewright and more.

Confusingly, I have four left according to lists, but five more on my shelf – anyway, Jeeves in the Offing next. 8 months ago

kaydee258-9, and getting behind already

Re-watched – Skyfall and Star Trek: into Darkness (for my mum’s education)

True Grit (the Coen brothers remake), been meaning to watch it for ages – very good. 10 months ago


The secret life of Walter Mitty
Loved it – 4/5 10 months ago


Two old favourites, seems to be a pattern to re-watch in January – Fellowship of the Rings, and Arsenic and Old Lace, which I hadn’t watched for ages. Forgotten just how good the script is. 11 months ago

28 – Re-watched Best Exotic Marigold Hotel, just love it for the feelgood factor
29 – Arthur Christmas – possibly the best Christmas film ever. 11 months ago

Sold an unopened item of makeup on ebay 13 months ago


8 items of clothing given to charity 13 months ago

kaydee2526 - Marnie

A deeply disturbing film. 13 months ago


Used my lunch break constructively and got rid of 2 broken electrical items and one old household item at the tip, erm I mean civic amenity centre. Now I know where it is for future reference, and my car is considerably lighter (been meaning to go for weeks). 14 months ago

kaydee2525 - The father of my children

I’m not going to finish this goal but I’m carrying on anyway, it’s fun.
No 25 seriously depressing – I wish I hadn’t bothered. Should come with a warning, do not watch if you’re finding life tough. Taking all the French films off my lovefilm list! 14 months ago

kaydee2525, 24

Two lovely picture books that I’ve been meaning forever to give to my niece and nephew – off my shelf and bestowed. (Although if they don’t appreciate them sufficiently I may take them back!) 14 months ago

kaydee25On track, more or less

One week in to this resolution, and I’ve only missed one day. Finished the Knife of Never Letting Go, started an Elmore Leonard, and re-reading a Study in Scarlet. 14 months ago

kaydee2528, 27, 26

Sold a top on ebay (only made pennies profit though), and threw away a tatty old pair of shoes. Recycled an old jam jar from the back of the cupboard as a pen holder. 14 months ago

kaydee2512 more gone, 29 to go

Took a bag to charity shop. I think this is a goal to set on a regular basis. Next step, try to sell a couple of things on ebay, and get registered on freecycle. 14 months ago

kaydee252 down, 41 to go

Was ruthless and threw away an old tote bag and an old purse. It’s a start! 14 months ago
