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.

StephenVacation goal #4

I am spending time in Thailand with Tiwa. The first few days are spending with family, so we are not getting the alone time right now and we always have so much planned, it feels more like a marathon sometimes than a vacation. I know things will slow down eventually, but having it start this way was unavoidable since we arrived on New Years Eve. I am trying to keep my spirits high and Tiwa’s family being warm and welcoming helps. At least I don’t feel stressed and I do enjoy that!

Jes JonesStudy Abroad

I had always wanted to visit Europe, and found that my study abroad option during college was the most feasible financially and gave me the best opportunity to emerge myself in the culture. I haven’t been able to get back but would definitely recommend looking into volunteer or course options that might make this goal more realistic! 2 years ago


I will be visiting China (and Hong Kong) during June of this summer :) 3 years ago


I did this in Dec 2010 to visit Kerstin, who pointed me toward 23 things before she moved there. It was not the trip I had hoped. I was able to say goodbye to my friend and hopefully bring her family a small amount of comfort. 3 years ago

HannahFlights booked!

Me and Simon booked our hotel and flights tonight. It was a toss up between Rome and Amsterdam. Financially Rome wasn’t an option, so we’re spending five nights in Amsterdam and I can’t wait! 4 years ago
