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.

EuphemiaCould be a music video

Yesterday I bumped into a friend who said he would work with us on a music video. This would be a good first foray into film making! 2 years ago


I’ve wanted to do this for so long but I’ve constantly put it off, I’m sure it’s due to fear. This is the year I will finally buckle down and do something about it. 2 years ago

fixxy05Not a director but I made them look good.

A friend of mine is a film major at a local college and he makes a horror movie every summer that he enters into local film festivals. This summer he did a movie about a boy with quick progressing rabies attacking the townspeople and eventually his own family. They filmed for a week at various locations in East Tennessee. I had the pleasure of doing makeup for the movie. This involved a large dog bite, bullet wound to the forehead, making the boy look sick, and other various wounds involving blood. The fact that the heat and humidity in East TN sucks it was a very interesting process. 3 years ago

andi247The idea

I have the idea for the film. The details just need working out 4 years ago

katereeningtwarmake a film

I am an art student and often use film as my medium. However this can be different from making a “film”. I want to make a film with an actual script, cast, plot etc. Probably a very short one to begin with. First step : Write the script!
This may take a while! 4 years ago

michaelbeckI really want to make a film

I have several ideas for making a film. From a high budget to low, I really want to make a film!

I have financial responsibilities that are holding me back. But I hope to get around those and get out there and make a film! I need some help though! 4 years ago

Will_KennedyOld Time Gangsters :)

Alright, this is something that me and my mates joked about at school, a film where elderly men are the main characters and they are gangsters, robbin’ and threatinin’ old guy style in Britain somewhere, London maybe.

This idea comes from my Grandad, Fred Tatlow, who I’ve convinced my friends is a gangster and has a pistol hidden in his room from when he was in he army. He did rob his mates minibus though, which he still has to this day, so the idea came partly from that. Also, he claims to know everybody and always tries to get better deals from shopkeepers and stuff, talkin to them like their his mates, so they give in.

Well, I want this school idea to become reality, it will be action/
comedy and I’d love if I could get my grandad to play the main gangster, but haven’t told him about it. Also It’d be cool if I could get the chuckle brothers from the UK to act in it, also as gangsters.

I can just picture it and I want to get it done. :) 4 years ago
