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.

baileys_truffle13 to go

So Ive had two lessons and so far theyve gone really well, Im already well on my way to mastering 3D which is great in itself.

Everyones really nice too, so this should be a doodle … or more accurately, a spline. 4 years ago

baileys_truffleFirst day


I am a little anxious and a little excited. I hate starting things I’m not familiar with or in unfamiliar places which involve meeting unfamiliar people but Ive done it before and Ill have to do it again.

I guess Ill feel better once I get through tomorrow and know what the next few months will entail. Wish me luck! 4 years ago

baileys_truffleRoll on January

I’m enrolled on a CAD level 3 course. I can’t wait. Technically I won’t get the certificate till I complete the course in May but hopefully it will back up my experience and I can complete my goal to get my ideal job! 5 years ago
