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.

gdi43One of my childhood dreams

I was raised on stories my father told of the auto racing in South Africa he watched as a child, of the battles that would play out between the Ferrari’s and Porsche’s of the 1960’s and 70’s. I don’t know if any of it was true, but I always wanted to be a race car driver. And now I am! 3 years ago


I want to race cars for 1 reason to get $$$$$$$$ 6 years ago


i think it would feel great to do something like that 6 years ago

scottdbenedictMy greatest passion

Since i was a little boy there was two things i really wanted to do…design cars and race cars. I am a designer for a major auto manufacturer located in dearborn michigan. Part 1. done. time to get my ass in gear. no pun intended. 6 years ago

Philip78Be very cautious when you do it

I just sold away my modified VW Caddy Turbo which clocks 8.0 sec in 0-100. Used to own a Pulsar GT in Australia. Yes it is fun, but my advice to people would be to practice on a race track instead of taking to the streets and killing/injuring someone. I’ve gotten into bad accidents before so now i go to legalized tracks to try stunts such as E- brake out. Not worth the risk doing it illegally, getting busted by the cops 7 years ago


I drift. Not really racing, but its a form of motorsports. 7 years ago

What would it take to get in somewhere like the Pomona Raceway? (provided the car was a go)

Has anybody both run the 1/4 mile and the oval runs? Which is better and why? 8 years ago

dfault312I'm Sad

So, I had a Volkswagen Corrado (sporty little supercharged thing) and I loved it. But then I decided to get something cheaper to maintain, so I got a Toyota Camry. I miss my VW… and the Camry hasnt ended up being cheaper so far… 2200 in maintainence the first month. I need something fast. 8 years ago
