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.

be more expressive


Entries from everyone

J_SmithThat is why I signed up for 43 Things.

Maybe I will start a blog, even. It is easier for me to express myself through writing because I don’t have to worry about what someone will say, just what they will write. lol 6 years ago

emiredOn reflection.....

I’ve decided that I am good at expressing myself so I don’t think I need this as one of my goals. 7 years ago

Malcolm85Break out of my shell

I am shy, very shy, but i am also energetic, fun, crazy, exhilarating beyond heights. But no one knows this but me. 7 years ago

when you find the right person that allows you to express yourself, it’s so much easier to be able to do…it comes more naturally 8 years ago

hah7777scream and shout

I want to not be afraid to be loud and unruly sometimes. just for the sake of. not the attention, but the freedom of it. to break ongoing seeping monotony. 9 years ago
