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.

So this has been on the list for several years. After I made the trip to the post office my new passport arrived in 2.5 weeks a nice change from the one I got back in 1999 which took about three months. Now the only question is where to go first? 9 months ago


165 dollars. Meh. 10 months ago

Samicat24Started the process

WEll…kinda. I looked up what I need to do to get one. I found the forms and a place to submit. If I had a printer I could have done it tonight. 11 months ago


got it as a child and have kept renewing it since. It gives you a kind of freedom you don’t have otherwise. It’s expensive (at least in the USA) and so is traveling abroad, but being able to legally do it is the first step to achieving that goal. 11 months ago

Alaska GirlHow about in February

I think i need to put some concrete timelines on my travel goals, so I’m budgeting this one for February 11 months ago

TashaBlueI am so lazy

This has been a goal for at least 5 years. It’s expensive, but I need to get it done.

I think I’m going to plan for January, once the holiday season is over. Let’s hope I don’t need to flee the country before then. ;) 13 months ago

Emma135This is my first step to travelling

I need a passport. 14 months ago


I planned on going on a cruise with my boyfriend at the time. We filled out the passport applications from the post office, took our passport photos at Walgreens, mailed it in and within weeks we received them in time for our cruise. 15 months ago
