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.

lipeishan1 month till HSK 4

I only have one month left until the HSK 4! I am studying like crazy! I enjoy it though, its like im finally off this plateau I have been stuck at (because I wasn’t studying anything new) I know I have it in me, it is just a matter of how prepared I will be! I will pass no matter what! :D Excited 10 months ago

lipeishanThe bar has been set!

Today I needed to give myself a goal to work to with Chinese. I gave myself a visible way to see my progress and cheer me towards my goal of complete fluency verbal and written. This is the HSK!!! I haven’t decided if I want to take the HSK 4 or the HSK 5, because I don’t know if I would be able to pass level 5 in only 5 months, especially because of the rapid increase in level. I am concerned though that HSK 4 would be too easy. Who knows, I will take it in the summer! I also even set myself a personal reward if I pass! Can’t wait to start studying! :D 我需要准备好了,很努力学习! 10 months ago


after coming home from china, my chinese has slipped tremendously. i really would like to improve on my chinese language skills. 6 years ago


I thought now that I have time I can make some progress here. Ha! I might need to go to China. 10 years in a Chinese school and I’m still struggling. 6 years ago
