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.

Ruth Doylethe tardis

I was trying to build a stained glass tardis (Doctor Who’s space ship) for my son. I got overwhelmed and did not finish it. It is the first time building anything in years. My goal is to finish the Tardis and get back to working with stained glass. 22 months ago

piperlondonSo now

I have a work space, and I have been doing a lot more of it. Stained Glass really does make me very happy, I have a lot of fun. I could use better ventilation as the craft room just has a window, but this is a def. improvement from having everything just packed away in boxes. 5 years ago

piperlondonI love stained glass

but i never find time, or make time. I’m going to commit to working on it at least an hour a week, because it makes me happy. getting a work space together will be another challenge! 6 years ago

zalareynbig work

The husband and I have come up with a workspace solution for my stained glass. I’ll be moving my stuff out to the garage and building a large table to work on. I have a stained glass door, a sidelight window, and a small lamp I’ll be buiding next.. I need workspace desperately. 7 years ago


I haven’t done any stained glass work since Mother’s Day.. I’ve got four or five projects in need of completion, or yet to be started. I just haven’t managed to work up the motivation yet to work on them. Partly because I don’t have any good workspace, partly because my workspace has to be thoroughly cleaned up after every use (being that it’s my kitchen countertop!) 7 years ago


This is a section of a stained glass piece I did in 2005. It was 16”x34” with over 100 pieces and took over 100 hours of concentration and devotion. 8 years ago
