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.

best thing i’ve gotten myself in years. 3 years ago


I started kayaking about 8 or 9 years ago after a fair amount of canoeing experience. Vastly prefer over canoeing!

Back then, kayaking was still somewhat obscure and the boats started at around $600. You usually had to go to a specialty shop to get one. I’ve always borrowed or rented.

Now that it’s become a more popular sport the price range has dropped considerably. And there’s a wider variety to choose from at the “cheap” end.

Although i’m not a “beginner,” I am poor. I also don’t intend on doing a whole lot more than scooting around on lakes, mellow bays, marshes, etc. So i’m looking at entry level, aka starter kayaks.

A local mega sporting goods store is having a sale and i’m taking a look at several models and also reading reviews of them online.
The picture is taken at the store… the yellow one in the foreground, i like a lot.

This is at the top of the list of things i’ve been promising myself for years. I know it’s worth the investment because… not only is it a great fitness activity for me… but it also relaxes me & makes me feel mentally renewed. I struggle with depression and am trying to find healthy activities to counteract it.

yes, same pic as in my scavenger entry… i realized it qualified as a funny “virgin”3 years ago
