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.

SpencerMM2014 holdover.

Need to find the sketchbook I was working in. I should send this list to Nolan, too. 10 months ago


Hazel Lee VaughnI want to do this!

I’m not sure what this is about just yet. I could do this individually, of course, but it’s always so much more fun with a community of people doing this with you. I’d like to find out more about this. 11 months ago

Cora_and_ClariceSo here's the sister image, Light.

I’ve had this notion in my head for a while. Sometimes I feel like there’s a ball of light inside me, but no one can see it. When I got the image out of head and onto the board, I suddenly saw the protectiveness. How can people see what is so carefully shielded, guarded? But then again, maybe some things deserve to be protected… 11 months ago


Cora_and_ClariceThis is Dark, which belongs as a pair with Light.

But I haven’t been able to figure out how to combine the two on a single canvas in Gimp. I get as far as widening the canvas and pasting the second image in but I can’t seem to merge them. Oh well. I’ll have to post them as separate entries. 11 months ago

Cora_and_ClariceMy interpretation of Introduction.

This is a shitty photo of the board. I’ll see if I can clean it up later. 11 months ago


Cora_and_ClariceHoly cow, what a list!

I have this really weird fear of drawing – for some reason I’m afraid of running out of things to draw. It’s like I’m scared that imagination is a limited resource and I know that if I ever used it up, my heart would break. This list seems like a good antidote to that. Plus it’ll be a good use of my new whiteboard :)

Krissy Tuffield-KingI need to get back to doing this!

I’m at 40/100. I made it my personal challenge in May and worked on it for awhile… but then kind of forgot about it. Now its september and my personal goal deadline I set was for October 1st. Haha, now I have three weeks left to do 60 drawings xD
If I do five a day, I can knock it out in two weeks lol. 14 months ago

stufalufAs of Today

I am on number 76, Broken Pieces. First off, I started on this last year and lost the book that I was drawing in. Now, I had to start all the way over. Yes, it feels good to draw. No, it didn’t feel good to start all the way over. Have 25 more to go isn’t that bad, now to finish is the entire process. It will feel good when I do finish, something else off of my list. 15 months ago

stufalufAlmost a Year

I lost the tablet I was drawing in so I started over. I am on number 49, stripes. So, what halfway there. This is pretty cool thing to do. I will not let it get to a year. I could do at least 5 or more a day. That will knock it out! This is simple so why is it taking so long? 17 months ago
