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.

FloconI took my first snowboarding lesson 2 weeks ago!

It was so much fun (and exhausting), considering I have never done any snow sports before. However, it was slightly frustrating towards the end of the day because I still wasn’t able to turn and the only way for me to stop was by making myself fall down.
My last fall was quite painful and my tailbone is still recovering. But I can’t wait to go back for lesson 2!!

I don’t see myself becoming a great snowboarder, but if I make it to the regular slopes (not the beginner slope), I’ll be very happy! 23 months ago

EmilyAnne12Sore Butt.

How I did it: I’ve taken several lessons, but I can’t get the stopping part down. I always have to sit. So my butt was pretty sore but the end of the day. But it was worth it. I can’t say I’m anywhere near good yet, but I can make it down the hill only falling one or two…or three… times.

Lessons and Tips: I don’t think I’m good enough to give any tips… 4 years ago


so i went skiing once a week this past season, and actually tried boarding one of those weeks. It was painful, and the day we went was miserable and cold, so that just made the experience all that much more not-enjoyable. but i promise myself that i will be back up on the board next season for another shot. (i actually brought my skiis up with me that day and switched half way thru the day cuz i was so frusterated with myself.. maybe one of my 43 things should be “learn to have more patience with myself” haha) 5 years ago

MediterraneanMissCarving, Carving, Carving

My boyfriend took me snowboarding one weekend about a month ago. Within a few minutes I understood the concept of edges, within two hours I was linking turns!! By the end of next winter I’d love to be able to carve well and have the confidence to tackle Whistler ;) I want to make my boyfriend proud but most of all I want to feel the rush of having nothing but powder ahead of you and nothing but confidence to help you make that first turn!

I’ve got my board now, a Burton named “Kronk”. I can’t wait to take him for a ride ;) 5 years ago


I live in the best state for snow adventures.. yet i have learned to snowboard. Makes me laugh since my boyfriend is an avid snowboarder and always asks me to come along. I say no cause i never have money

bluesol93might as well

Well, since I’m going to be stationed at Ft. Lewis, WA I might as well take advantage of the bloody cold weather (I hate the cold) and learn how to snowboard. It’s something I’ve always wanted to try out. 5 years ago
