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.

Tuning a guitar, ... Now I know why singers have so many words, because it can drive you nuts. 12 months ago


So I went to my buddies and He let me try rocksmith. I must admit if you’d like to play guitar I find it to be easy to learn this way. Now, he admitted to having a cheap guitar and it seemed to work a bit less than par but I had fun anyways. Perhaps something to consider in the near future. 12 months ago

Craig OrrI do already play guitar

But I seriously need to improve on my playing. 13 months ago


I’m dedicated to buying a new guitar this month, I have it on my list. Now I only hope that I will do exactly that.

It’s nice to play until your fingers hurt, making up mock melodies. I can’t play fer sh*t, but I like imagining that I could. Ol’ campfire in a dark forest playing camping songs. Or just plain old jamming Pink Floyd or Nirvana songs.

I have the Pink Floyd – The Wall guitar book. But I can’t really read the scales, or notes… Any tips on learning these are welcome. 14 months ago
