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.

I’ve just been accepted to train as a teacher of Primary Ethics. This will be taking place in my childrens school for the kids who don’t attend religious studies. I’m really looking forward to it. It covers various subjects environment, friendships, animal cruelty, interraction, morals etc but is an interractive experience where the kids can openly discuss the topics. It’ll be a challenge but I can’t wait. 2 years ago

I’d like to do more volunteer work, especially in “My Father’s House”.

My goal: visit the orphanage at least once every two weeks. 5 years ago


i have been a guide leader for 3 years (cant really stop as the unit will close without me as its quite a disadvantaged area) but i want to do a bit more such as help with soup kitchens etc….
i have also helped in a old folks home… ie reading to the residents and basically just giving them a bit of social interaction.
i still want to do more though…not sure what though…. 5 years ago


I have put in a submission to Volunteer Illawarra to read with kids on a Monday morning during the school terms next year. I am thinking between that, giving blood and the charity fundraisers I am doing next year by the end of 2009 – I’ll be able to mark this off my list! 6 years ago

beanauI also forgot to add....

I also held (within my workplace… but I was a primary organiser) a Girls Night In to raise money for women’s cancers.

We raised a little under $400. It all helps! 6 years ago


I have now committed to giving blood every 3 months…. Is this considered doing charity work? Well it’s a good thing regardless! 6 years ago
