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.

rosiechongpaint my walls

bedroom – bathroom and kitchen. 4 years ago


I’ve been wanting to paint the walls in my house for about 3 years now but I never have the time and always feel overwhelmed by the thought of starting such a big project. I would like to finally do it before this year is over. 5 years ago

DecemberLynnI paid someone else to do it!

It was not worth my time or effort to do it myself so I let the professionals handel it! SO worth it! 6 years ago

bibliophile1It's only paint...

It’s made such a difference in my apartment, for a gallon of paint and a Saturday afternoon. Wine-red, the most delicate yellow, wedgewood-blue, shell pink-peach, twighlight blue-purple—I’m so grateful for landlords who let me paint.

I love what an easy design-risk this is—if you’re worrying, stop. Just do it.(And if you hate it, it’s easy to change!) 7 years ago

ins0maShades of green

I finally decided to just go for it, and painted the walls of my bed- and living rooms. I went to the local DIY store, and looked through the samples until I found a couple colors I liked, and bought 2 gallons. I used color-wash brushes, and did a couple very light coats, until I ended up with a really nice textured effect. The bedroom is a kind of mint-mossy kind of color, and the adjoining living room, through the French doors, is a darker putty kind of green. It totally changed the whole feel of my place, and I’m really glad I did it. No more boring white apartment walls! 7 years ago
