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 want to go swimming a lot this summer. I think I will try to talk my parents in to buying a swimming pool. Would anyone happen to know where we can find swimming pools near Naples, FL? 6 months ago


Had only done this periodically, perhaps no more than five times, in the past 20 years. Had forgotten how hard it is on the heart but now I’ve started I’m going to keep going. Could do with some goggles to keep the chlorine out of my eyes though. 7 months ago

KiraStupid locker keys.

I finally went swimming today! I went all by myself and I swam up and down the pool many times. There were loads of people to the end of my session so there were loads of accidental touches which is the most awkward thing ever.
I really enjoyed it but I have been left with bruises from the locker key, gross dry hair and really bad ear aches!

Like really why would you make those keys so awkward. 8 months ago


this was a huge deal for me. hadn’t been swimming for 8 years, because I despise my body. I feel proud of myself for having done this, but I don’t know whether I will do this again soon, since it’s still really difficult for me :( 11 months ago

Just want to splish splash around. 19 months ago

KiraA list of things I need for this:

  • Prescription goggles so I can see what I’m doing and so I won’t get headaches.
  • A swimming buddy.
  • A cheap/free way to get to the swimming pool.

Then I’ll go. 2 years ago

What is this 2 years ago

KiraThe Olympics!

I’ve been really adverse towards the Olympics. Well I had been.
On Friday I watched the swimming and it was really interesting. Not only did it get me interested in the Olympics but it really made me want to go swimming myself! 2 years ago
