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.

brassedoff69Harder Than I Thought

I did actually spend some time on this last year. I did get frustrated. Will work more on it this year! 11 months ago

karassaI have my own clubs!

I played a scramble during a departmental team-building outing. It was an absolute blast, and then my boyfriend convinced me to get my own clubs, and we’ve been playing a bit or hitting some balls at the range. It’s quite fun! I’m still terrible though, and would probably benefit from a lesson or three! 15 months ago

I tried to learn to golf last summer, but my schedule didn’t allow me to do it. I hope I can do it in this spring and summer. 21 months ago


I have a gift certificate for lessons!! Hurry up Spring! 23 months ago

raindropsgolf practice

On the golfing trip I was just on, we had 2 days of golf lessons.

Day 1, we worked on ‘grip, aim, setup’ and our drives. Driving is hard! especially because I didn’t have gloves, and my left arm hurt so bad after a couple of hours of gripping a club. I drove with a 7 iron.

Day 2, we did some putting. Putting was much more fun. It’s a lot more gentle and just mind work. I find I put with too much strength. So what I did to make my put softer was to say in my head ’ gently, gently’ at the moment of hitting the ball. My puts were definitely more gentle then. I think it’s psychological.

I’ve put some money into the game: I’ve invested in a golf glove.

I need to find a driving range that works for me and do this weekly or possibly more frequently – like, after work; I’ve seen a couple of driving ranges on the route back. 2 years ago

raindropsgolf - the beginning

I’m not very keen on golf but my company’s big on golfing so I’ll take this as a great opportunity to learn!

I tried golfing once, at the driving range, but I couldn’t even hit the ball! :o

I never went back, but now…

We’re going on a trip next week and golfing is the main event. There’ll be lessons for beginners too, I hear, so I’ve signed up, and will approach this stately sport with renewed vigour and optimism. 2 years ago

ive never really had the time or money but golf has always something ive heard nothing but good things about. Its a big time commitment but in the experience ive had with golf its quite relaxing and no too taxing on the body

Since my original entry I’m really happy to say I finally completed this goal. I played for free and learned from my friends this past spring. I had a lot of time last May to practice and ultimately got to the point of being proficient enough to beat some of my friends at school. I bought a student golf membership this summer and golfed pretty regularly. I’m glad to finally check this off the list as something I worked hard at and ultimately achieved much sooner than I had anticipated. 4 years ago

jantwicThis is especially hard for me

I find this to be extreamly hard because I am lefthanded and I don’t have the means to go out and take lessons 4 years ago

Peggy HillChip and Putt

Last week I went to a Par 3 Chip and Putt. I did okay and had lots of fun. I even got Par on one hole! I also went to the driving range this week. I am consistently making contact with the ball. Hooray! 4 years ago
