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.

- The Robots.

I’m not marking this as done until I have my car back and it has been serviced, but it is at least at the mechanics. 23 months ago


The other day I noticed my car making a strange sound, then I drove to my paretns place, my dad was outside, and said ‘is your car OK?’ my dad knows shit all about cars, so for him to notice…it’s a thing.
The day after tomorrow my car goes in. It means going without a few things this week, ok it means no random splugy money, but it’s a bit more important than, well, anything… 23 months ago

Ladysocksmust have had this goal before....

This time I need a major service and it is money holding me back. As ever. 23 months ago

smorriscar is there

Car has been left with my dad’s friend to be serviced, we dropped it off last night. It’s costing less than at the garage. Hopefully there’ll be nothing major wrong with it. Will find out later today. 2 years ago


Car is booked in for Saturday 21st. Hope there’s nothing too major wrong with it because it will cost me a fortune otherwise. 2 years ago

smorrisit needs one

It’s been well over a year since I got my car serviced. Usually I take it to the car dealer I bought it from, but they cost too much money. Since I have no job, I need to save all the money that I can till I find a new job. 2 years ago
