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 like 43T, and will continue to use it, but I’ve added another goal which is more important – creating a life plan so that I can focus on the actual achievement and completion of goals by making it SMART, and 43T isn’t for life planning per se – more like ‘yay, I’ve finished the little stuff’. 4 years ago

rmmHousekeeping stuff on 43 folders...

Also get entires and comments attached to all of my goals, and periodically update the goals (and entries!) with my progress 9 years ago

torNot the original, but good enough in spirit.

I set out to do this every day for a month. I realize now that it’s just unrealistic for me, given my schedule. I can confidently say that the purpose for this Thing has been fulfilled. 43things is now a big part of my life when it comes to identifying and achieving what I want. I check it every day I can, and not everyday has enough news worth reporting, but I do make progress and I am tracking it. 9 years ago


Days spent away from home and the Intertron do not count against this goal. 9 years ago

torTime Out

Last three days don’t count since I was without Internet access. 9 years ago


Saw this goal and really liked it. I want to set a timeframe of around a month of doing this solidly. I think that’s about the average time it takes for people to form habits. After that, it should take care of itself.

First things first… this goal should be much easier to achieve if I max out my 43 things…. 9 years ago

FlashThis is the carrot

It seems like it works better if I know I have to do one thing before I go online. 9 years ago
