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’ll do this by studying a foreign language and accomplish this before graduating 10 months ago

AlixI already speak (fluently) 5 languages, but...

it’s never enough!

next on my plate: Japanese.

and Portuguese, because I plan a long weekend in Lisbon, soon. 15 months ago

Skoshi-BitModern Greek

Got a fee app for Greek vocabulary. Will look for the audio language lessons I bought years ago (on cassette tape!). 2 years ago


Began w/ a Pimsleur course in January 2012 2 years ago


I would love to try to learn another language before I graduate. I took spanish and latin in highschool butI never really got too interested in either of them. It would be great to speak another language fluently. Hopefully I could attempt to learn a new language with a humanities class that I still have to take. 3 years ago

somelikeitscarletSpanish! Here I come!

I have been wanting to learn Spanish for sometime because I work in an area that has a high spanish speaking population. I’ve been putting it off because my schedual is INSANE! I work full time, 12 hour night shifts, live an hour away from where I work, and am going back to school to get my Masters/Doctorate degree.. So I put it off and putt it off.. BUT a co-worker mentioned that I should try the Learn Behind the Wheel series so I bought it and I will be starting it while I drive to work today. I figure I drive two hours a day 3 to 4 days out of the week, I could actually do this in no time! Wish me luck! And I’ll be sure to keep updating this post that way I can let others know how this program works if they might be interested. 3 years ago
