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.

Did this in Roatan with Jarrett @ 2008 2 years ago

coldgingerellaSydney, Australia: 22nd Feb 2010

Dive was completed at Oceanworld Manly in Sydney. It was a 30 minute dive with sharks, giant stingrays and huge Sea turtles. Brilliant, although next time will have to have a real shark dive in a cage – I’m thinking south Africa! 4 years ago


Need to retake my scuba course and get certified. I guess I just have a thing for confronting fears. I don`t like deep water or the scary creatures that can reside in it. I guess the theory is that if I can make it through a dive with something that could rip me to pieces, I should be okay the next time my foot touches a weed at the lake. 5 years ago

Sept 2007 Started to learn to Swim
Aug 2008 Did first taster diving session and enjoyed it 6 years ago


I was suppose to snorkel with them but it was a red tide and to hard to see when snorkeling so we just got in the water and swam with them. These were leopard sharks off the coast of San Diego at La Jolla beach. These things were amazing. Very shy never got closer than a foot away so I never got to touch one, but incredible just the same. I have to say standing in the ocean breathing the fresh crisp air, enjoying the warmth of the sun hugging my shoulders as the sea lions on the rocks 100 yards away are barking and they sea gulls are crying and looking around at 35 to 40 of these gentle creatures swimming in the water around you has got to be one of the most spiritual moments I have ever had. Next on the list…the most misunderstood the Great White. 6 years ago

I love sharks and have always wanted to dive with them. I am certified to dive…just need to go where I can accomplish this. 6 years ago


Dived with reef sharks in Fiji. It was awesome to see them swimming around in the distance. 7 years ago

Got Papi? (Papacito)Hundreds of them ... (sorry for the repeat bragging)

Some dives just 2 or 3 present. Other times there were 50-70 hammerheads hovering overhead.

It’s pretty exciting. And it helps you break thru some of the myths of what’s dangerous and what’s not.

Of course, you always have to treat the sea and it’s creatures with mortal respect. There are tiny creatures like coneshells and sea snakes that can kill you faster than a great white shark. 7 years ago
