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.

OiHereItComesI can't wait

until I graduate high school and get out of here.
Even if it’s just for a few months of the summer before (and if?) I go to college.
I have a love/hate relationship with this town. Mostly hate. I really feel like this place and possibly the people in it are holding me back. There’s just nothing here for me. I just want to explore and be free and happy and not feel so claustrophobic knowing every single person. Don’t even get me started on my peers…! 3 years ago


I’ve only been here 6 months. But I feel like I’m living someone else’s life (that’s not just an emo metaphor; it’s kind of literal in my case). I need to get away from family again, as much as I love them, because when I live nearby, I can’t be independent and live my own life and I don’t feel like I’m creating my own goals for myself…sigh. I’ve really got to get out of here. I have no life here except work, apartment, and lonely coffee shops. 4 years ago

I want to go somewhere where people have no history with me and I can just start over. I’m tired of the past dogging me constantly. 5 years ago

I got out of this town like I said I would. I’m back but in a better situation. I found a way to be here where home is and go to the city when I’m not busy and just chill with my peoples. 6 years ago
