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.

Entries from everyone


I wanna learn one different language atleast, apart from english :-)
How do i go bout doing it 5 years ago


This monday I will start school again. And guess what! French step 1 and 2 is included. Within 20 weeks I will know the basics of french, and hopefully I will be able to speak some also… :P 6 years ago

xoxowhiterosesxoxoHola, Guten Tag, Ciao, and Hello!

I want to be able to speak Spanish, German, Italian, and Latin. English is my native language and I want to be able to speak the other languages I listed before I turn 18, I’m currently 12. I believe it would be very beneficial towards my career of choice, an author or an attorney or both.We are being taught Spanish right now in my middle school (against my will). I did not originally want to speak Spanish and still don’t, I think it will confuse me completely on which language I’m studying or speaking. I want to be able to talk to my friends in Latin and have them have absoluetly no idea what I’m saying. Latin is the language I most preferably want to learn. It will help me the most in a writing career. 7 years ago

acordeao4 languages fluently

I already know Swedish and English (although it can be advanced a bit more, one can never learn enough!) and I am now studying Brasilian Portuguese.

I think my 3rd language will be finnish, since my dad is from there. And about the 4th I am not sure yet. Thai maybe, or French, since I will be working the world as a cook and French is the language of the kitchen…

And then comes the question, does Swedish count into this goal since it is my mother tongue? 7 years ago

kuchingmatime too...

I wanna learn 4 langauges. would prefer 5, but I think that’s too many. Better to focus on quality rather than quantity, right?

Anyway, I can speak Indonesian and Englsih, am learning German at the moment, and havent decided on the other one yet. Spanish? Hindi? Any suggestions? 8 years ago

DerDeutscheOn my way...
