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.

2.05/2500 hours completed

I have a piano but it is really bad. Most of the keys don’t work and the instrument is not worth the repairs.

Before I trade this one in and buy a new one, I need to practice piano for a total of 2500 hours.

jeff coveyoutdated goal

I bought a piano over a year ago, but never closed this goal. I ended up buying a Casio PX-130 on the recommendation of a friend. I enjoyed it for a brief time before assorted crises hit and my piano lessons were over before they’d really begun. The piano stills sits in my living room, though, and waits for me to find a teacher again. 2 years ago

...I quit. I don’t have room in my home for a piano. I’m facing up to this! Maybe some day I’ll get it, but I’m taking this off my list of immediate goals. 2 years ago
