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.

RkTkFxSparten Training

I’ve always wanted to film myself training (from my fattest, slowest start point) over the course of 3 or 6 months and see my improvement… all to the song “walk” by Foofighters. 12 months ago


I saw this idea on a blog earlier in the week, but there was a guy who bought a brand new Canon video camera (expensive) and started filming people in his local park.

To get people to participate he gave away a popsicle. That way he had a way of getting people to participate. I had an a-ha moment today about camping. Since I’ll be going on this camping trip next weekend, it would be the perfect opportunity to ask people about camping stories. A little like NPR and this guys idea. They’ll have to take part because there won’t be much else to do.

Plus they’re just plain cool people who will probably have something interesting to say about camping in Canada. I should come up with a script though. I’ll check back in. I’m feeling ambitious about cleaning up my office for being productive. 2 years ago

I’d really like to make a video just to show I could. It would need to be about something though. I’d never “Vlog” I wouldn’t know what to say. It’d just be me on the camera saying “So… this is my video… em… yeah” and then calling this done.

I’d like it to take a bit of work and have a little substance. We’ll see how this goes. As soon as I have an idea I’ll post again. 3 years ago

StarsdudeMake an art video

The idea of making an art video really interest me. But I wouldn’t know what to do with it once I do make one.

Still I think it would be a neat concept to explore. The downside is video equipment is expensive, and I don’t know if this is something you can make money with, although it would be fun to do. And if I do make it where do I go with it and where do I show it.

I know most people think art videos are weird. To be honest I’ve seen some that I think are weird too, but I’ve also seen some I think were really artful. Part of the appeal for me is to put what I consider to be art onto a video format. Like painting except the camera is your brush. 4 years ago
