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.

RainPrincess7I went zip-lining

I went zip-lining with my brother this year. It was epic! I can’t wait to go again next year for the even harder course. Again, it was EPIC! 15 months ago

sue820This was a challenge to me.

DH is going through a searching phase, and I want to go with him, so I’m along for the ride. This is something he wanted to do. I’m afraid of heights, so it wasn’t something I would have picked. I could have declined, but decided I didn’t want my fears to define me, and I wanted to stretch those boundaries. I went with the attitude, “Aren’t I lucky? I get to see a view of God’s creation many people never see.” That and a certain fatalistic attitude saw me through and even allowed me to enjoy it after the initial two runs. 17 months ago

guillemets2+km of zips

I did the most amazing thing yesterday: Friday night my friend sent me a message asking if ziplining was still a thing I was interested in; he was trying to round up some people to go this weekend as it had been on his mind. He couldn’t find anyone else on such short notice, but he picked me up Saturday morning anyway and we went out to Sooke where they have a course of 7 lines through the trees at the top of a mountain. One of them is a kilometer long and quite high up.

Stepping off the platform each time was scary, but it seems as though my fear of heights has largely dissipated over the last year or so. Maybe my fear of lots of things, come to think of it. Zooming over the treetops was just incredible. We both had so much fun and it was a great day to spend my Saturday afternoon. 2 years ago


Did this in Laos. It was great fun! 2 years ago

MonarchAmadaSo much fun!

I had the amazing opportunity to go zip-lining in Costa Rica, and I went for it! It was exhilarating, a little scary, and peaceful all at the same time. I can’t wait to go again! 2 years ago
