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.

TangerineRoseGuitars and other instruments

This year I have really opened up to the idea of making music, rather than just listening to it 6 years ago


One of my talented cousins gave me this hand sculpture for my 16th Birthday. It sits on my bedside table 6 years ago

TangerineRoseSilk scarves

I have a bit of a collection of silk scarves. I wasn’t a scarf wearer before, but now I love them, so much! The ones I own were handwoven in Laos and Cambodia, been produced ethically and sustainably,using all natural dyes, from flowers etc. I love their beauty and the story behind them 6 years ago


I always thought expensive label sunglasses were a bit of a joke, until a friend convinced me to make this purchase.
I spent too much on these, and I do own other cheaper sunglasses that do the job and look good. But I have several reasons why they make it to my favourite things list. These oversize frames are so comfortable on, really block out the sun, I dig the gold detail, and their ultra expensiveness has taught me to be more respectful and careful with my belongings. And there is definitely a difference in quality compared to my cheap sunglasses. 6 years ago


I have some Buddhas and a couple of crosses on display at home. A nod to both sides of the family. This is a close up of a cross that is on the wall. I love the detail 6 years ago


I love the detail on my carved decorative table. Had it delivered just before my trip, so it is still new, and very special. 6 years ago


My green ring was designed by my jeweller friend. The specks in the stone are beautiful. The pale pink ring I purchased on my holiday in the States, from a lovely antique shop.
Found this holiday action pic featuring my rings 6 years ago

Tony, the Bald EagleSwanndri

I love my swannie. I’ve had it for over 20 years and it keeps getting better.

My son bought himself a Swanndri earlier this year for when he goes farming. I felt real proud! 7 years ago
