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.

Cora89Went to Burkina Faso

Did it through a study abroad program September- December. Highly recommend it! Look up FAVL: Friends of African Village Libraries. I volunteered there and it was an eye-opening, heart melting experience. 3 years ago


For a month over summer, I went away to Uganda with some friends trekking. It was totally worthwhile, if only to realise how much I love England, and showers.
It was the longest I’d spent away from home and I missed my family and boyfriend very much, but I think the experience was worth it. 4 years ago

Cora89lions and tigers and Giraffe's Oh My!

I have always wanted to go to Africa… lion king was a great motivator. I want to get away from civilized life, the only life I’ve ever known. 4 years ago

pearlearringsSettling In

I’ve been here a month now – time really flies. And it’s kind of frustrating to realise that I haven’t found a job I really like yet, or made some great friends yet and really enjoyed myself.

But I really feel like I understand how things work, how it ticks, and the complex issues that underpin everyday life. I certainly don’t think I am having a regular tourist experience. I just hope that I push this further and become happy here. 5 years ago

gilligan56travel the world with someone

I went to Africa when I was in the Navy in 1975. But things have changed quite a bit. Most cases for the worse and I’d like to see things more clearly. 5 years ago
