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.

TO BEGIN ON FEB 3 2009, ON MY 50TH BIRTHDAY. 5 years ago


i want to leant french and italina, i already know english..which its my second language and spanish 6 years ago


English is a second language for me (my first is Arabic) and I would like to perfect it over time, someday, like a native. I took French lessons about two years ago and now I have forgotten an awful lot of what I learnt. Yet, being good at other foreign languages is really an interesting idea. 6 years ago

KlibanskyWhich to choose

I always enjoyed speaking languages and always learnt a few word when travelling and studied French, Russian and Latin at school (oh year and a brief year of Italian) Howwever not following these up all bar the French has been mostly forgotten and the French needs some polishing up.
So which language to choose. something I would use: Spanish, Italian, Portuguese, Russian?
i’m thinking of another romance language – most likely Spanish and then probably Russian again. German and Dutch are also possiblilities especially as my company has a sight in Holland. We shall see – so much to consider 9 years ago
