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.

snakegrl1306unused, empty, lonely books

throughout my elementary school years, we were required to buy a new black-and-white journal for that year. i have several blank ones lying around, some half-filled with notes and half-remembered things i did that i now want to fill. that blank space-makes me want to fill it, or else i’ll forget it; and all the things that went before it. i’ve started doing this already, by going through them and marking notes, and making a new entry—with the date in the top right hand corner, as all the others have. 4 years ago

Little_Indian13Blank pages

I own a bunch of great sketch books, each one with a purpose that never gets fullfilled because I keep waiting for these lighting of inspiration, or hoping to become better at drawing or writting and guess what? I never do because all my notebooks are blank waiting for a miracle, but not anymore the only way to get better is to use them and practice on them. 4 years ago


I keep getting journals for gifts, and sketchbooks too. I got two sketchbooks and one journal this Christmas alone! I have to say that I need to fill them. I have filled one of my sketchbooks after a few years, but that only leaves about…3 more, and 3-4 journals. I need to fill them! 5 years ago

girl_onamissionComing along!

I’ve been getting back in the habit of writing pretty regularly. It’s nice to get things out of my head and on paper… easy to sort out what’s going on. This goal is on it’s way to becoming completed. 6 years ago

girl_onamissionI need to write more.

I doubt it’s healthy to have these thoughts/emotions bottled up inside of me… time to MAKE time to write, every day, in my journal. And it’s not going to be anything about calories, weight, or obsessions about food or agonies about my body. Just happy thoughts, hell, I’ll even allow depressed thoughts. But no ed thoughts. SO THERE ED. 6 years ago

girl_onamissionMission #1.

I am to write down every negative thought that flits through my mind about my body, and what I am going to eat/ am eating/ have eaten, for the week. I will easily be able to fill up a notebook, and this saddens me, a little. I have faith though that it will help in the long run, somehow. 6 years ago

SgianDubhI can but try...

This is a great idea… i too have a gadzillion sketch books lying around in my room, all started on but then inexplicably left. I can work a book for years… on and off. I’d really like to be more on than off, i guess. Doesn’t help that i’m a bookmaker, so filling every sketch pad i have wouldn’t really be practical. Make more artists books perhaps? 6 years ago

JadedForeverStop buying & start writing-

I either need to stop buying so many journals or I need to write up a storm. 7 years ago
