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.

isdeatharoundI'm half the man I used to be

I don’t know how to live my life anymore. I’m down in the ground looking up where I used to be. I chose to be here in the first place with eyes wide open never understanding the obvious scenarios. 6 years ago

I must face myself.I’m a people with poor health,which means I can’t live a happy life.

GunslingerCait-kills self-

Honestly people

the meaning of life

is basicly what you make it out to be

perhaps its not a “goal”

But it is what ever makes you happy

It might sound corny as hell

But it is what is important in your mind

It might be firends and faimly or mabey even a job

But as long as it makes your happy and you find it important

Than thats your meaning in life

God I need to kill myself for posting this hahahaha 7 years ago


The meaning of life is to live. I don’t think it’s necessary to think of the meaning in depth. 7 years ago

phuckIts amazing

It’s weird how the centre of our solar system is the home of our sun, without the sun no planets could survive, one day the sun will blow up (Supernova) but it wont happen for an estimated millions of year, lets just hope humanity doesnt distroy itself. 7 years ago


i believe our minds cannot comprehand of what the true meaning of life is. We have limited capablities, just like out-dated computers, we can do only so much… 8 years ago

EmeliUKThe meaning of life

The Talmud teaches:
Just before a baby is born,
an angel shows it everything there is to know
and learn
on Earth.
Then at the moment of birth,
the angel touches the infant’s upper lip,
and the child forgets everything.
We spend the rest of our lives
what the angel showed us.
This is a generic guide
to the meaning of life.
It does not describe one view
of the meaning of life
and recommend you adopt it.
It helps you remember
what the angel showed you.
The angel showed you
the meaning of life.
In case you have not remembered yet,
here is what the angel showed you. 8 years ago

Rene W.It will never happen

I think the meaning of life is to learn from your mistakes & be kind to others. Also, living to it’s fullest has to be another factor. Being educated on religion and philosophy will bring people closer to knowing the age old question. 8 years ago

Rene W.Not getting any closer...

What I’ve been learning is to be patient. Our house still hasn’t sold & now we’ve put off our move for 3 months! The meaning of my life is that it sucks right now! 8 years ago
