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.

I’m here! work is starting! Moscow is incredible. So worth it. 4 years ago


i bought my ticket to Moscow yesterday, oh my God. leaving in early august. 4 years ago


looks like I might get to be a teacher! I had originally tried to be a teacher in the U.S., but I struggled to find a job that I wanted. Now if everything works out I will get to be an English teacher at a school in or around Moscow. I originally planned to be away for just a summer-time. Now it will be more like nine months, but that is probably the amount of time I require to attain the fluency that I want. 4 years ago


I’m planning on living in Russia for nine months! I’m going to work as an au pair or as an English language teacher. I’m definitely resolved to do this; I realized how badly I wanted to go back to Russia and become fluent when my grant didn’t work out. I’m prepping with Russian TV and reading Russian literature. 4 years ago


I didn’t get the CLS grant that I wanted. Looks like I’ll have to find another way. 4 years ago


I applied for a grant. I could go to Russia this summer if I receive the government money! fingers crossed. I’m already thinking about what I’ll do when I get there. 4 years ago
