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.

write entries for all of my goals


Entries from everyone


now i’ll just have to keep on it…i’m committed to regularly updating my top 10-15 goals, and the others can slide a little:) 7 years ago


And when I add a new goal, I’m going to make sure that I write an entry. 8 years ago

tpoqabpart of making the goals concrete

and making sure that i don’t forget about things – regular entry writing. of course, ‘regular’ is in itself vague. i think if i get an entry for every goal by the end of this week, and then write updates where appropriate twice a week, that’ll be good. 8 years ago

KatchooNow I just have to keep up with updating each of them!

I need to remember to set some little goals in with the big long term conceptual ones….it’s nice to check them off! 8 years ago

KatchooDone most but not all...

And the ones that are left uncommented so far are the harder ones to think of anything to say about at this point…but I’m working on it! 8 years ago


I feel like my list has been fleshed out. And in that very blogger-esque way, I feel like I’ve shared a little bit more of myself out in cyberspace. God I hate that term, yet I used it. Ah well. Can’t be perfect all of the time. Or ever. 9 years ago
