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.

Adelissa MaryweldI used to read all the time

This goal is almost too easy but I figured I shouldn’t set myself up for failure. I used to read more than a book a week but I got my first laptop a few years ago and have gotten into games/social media etc and have gotten away from reading as my primary means of spending spare time. My mother passed away in December 2010 and I inherited all her books so I have a lot to chose from. I’m going to start with a book Called Such Devoted Sisters, by Eileen Goudge. I plan on starting it next week and post at the end of each book what I thought of it. I’m also keeping a “dictionary” of all the books I ever read starting now, alphabetized by author. If I can read 1-2 books a month, 10 years from now it could look mighty impressive! 9 months ago

NinaPintaSantaMariaNicholas Sparks - Safe Haven

Book 1 down and I think I’ve set my goal too low. I’m heading to the library tomorrow to pick up more sappy Nicholas Sparks novels :) 23 months ago

Read “House Rules” by Jodi Picoult and finished in about 2 weeks. Can’t wait to start a new book! 2 years ago


Before I went to college I was reading for fun all the time! But then I got burnt out on reading…but I’ve been out of college for a few years now. So I would like to at least read 1 book a month. I already started my book for January – House Rules by Jodi Picoult. I love her books and am already super happy about this one :) 2 years ago


I have started on this. I went to Barnes & Noble yesterday and picked up 2 books. The second book I got was the start of a trilogy so I figured that was a good place to start. 3 years ago
