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.

Amy CoxOne Month!

In exactly one month I shall be leaving my house to go to Amsterdam! 20 months ago


Went to Amsterdam over the weekend. Only downer was that it was very wet and very cold. The weather had been so mild the week before and I was looking forward to seeing all the spring flowers. I did however go to some of the museums such as Anne Franks house and I took a daytrip out of Amsterdam to an museum village which had real working windmills and workers actually still wearing clogs. I am sure I will return sometime soon to take the canal cruise and walks in the park. The Van Gough museum was under renovation so thats also on the next itinery. Museums a bit pricey but everything else I found quite affordable compared to London. 21 months ago

RoxaneDutchGo to Amsterdam

I currently live in Holland so this isn’t a hard goal for me. Visiting Amsterdam is really worth it, I go there about once a month and every time I am impressed. Good museums, fun and spontaneous tourists, it’s all good. 23 months ago


When I travel, I research the place I want to go. Used to we just had books at the library or purchasing them at a bookstore. Now there is the internet and google. It is easy to click “inexpensive hotels in Amsterdam.” At the same time, I narrow down the time of year I want to go. Amsterdam in May was awesome. I don’t think it would be as much fun in the winter, but the rates would be cheaper then. Then I use a credit card to buy my ticket. Nowadays, I can pay my card off before I go. Back then, I saved up my money before I went and took traveller’s checks. If you are younger, you canstay at a hostel and that is a great way to meet other folks. Or you could try that website Couchsurfing or something like that. 23 months ago

I have wanted to travel to Europe for as long as i can remember. 2 years ago

genguIt is official.

Booked, purchased and set. Monday I leave for Budapest, Hungary to catch a flight there since it is cheaper that way. The plane flies to Eindhoven and from there I am going to Amsterdam, where I will stay a few days. I can’t wait! :D 2 years ago

genguNew plans.

Half plans actually. :) I am currently making plans for my vacation and Netherlands is the destination. It could easily happen that I don’t actually go to Amsterdam and go to some other Dutch town, but it really doesn’t matter as long as I see their beautiful architecture and nature. :) In general, my plan is to go camping and to go by train if possible, stay in Netherlands for a few days and then go to Italy to some place on the beach and stay there a couple more days.
But it would be best if I just hopped on a train and left the rest to faith. :D 2 years ago
