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.

suntankittyWorking hard can get you everywhere you want to go

Reading is one of my favorite things to do but if I’m not reading something that gets me hooked than it feels like it takes me DECADES to finish reading!
If I could triple my reading speed I wouldn’t need to spend 30 minutes or more looking for a good book that catches my eye. So from now Sep 19 to Dec 19 I’m going to work on tripling my reading speed! 15 months ago

Emma2277want to achieve this

I like reading but easily get distracted by outside noises even the tick of a clock, especially when I read something not very fascinating~~

I wonder I can I achieve this, I admire those people who could read anywhere. 17 months ago

tsgtalford62faster reading and better comprehension

I like to read, but I am, I guess, like most in that I am particular about what I read. I think first off, that in order to speed up my reading, I have to comprehend the material. I have a couple of books about speed reading, and have tried the exercises, but I still haven’t picked up much speed. Another point taken from that last sentence is (I tried the exercises). In order for improvement to take place, there has to be a goal. One needs to set out a time to do the exercises each day, and check the progress. 21 months ago

SpookyCakes181 wpm

I am an avid reader, so that 181 wpm (according to is really sad, considering 200 is the average. I want to be able to read more books in a shorter amount of time.

I set this as my personal challenge to be completed in 3 weeks. I want to be able to read 543 wpm or greater according to

I figure this will help me with one of my New Year’s resolutions, too, which is to read 20 classic novels in 2013.

We’ll see how it goes! 2 years ago
