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.

Zaldania2 way street

Well, keeping in touch is a two way street. I’ve done what I can. 15 months ago

NualaBualaI'm renaming this from

“get better at keeping in touch with people who are important to me me”


“Cultivate relationships with other people”.

It seems to better reflect what I’m aiming for.

This year I’ve got to know some of my neighbours a bit better and that has not always been through keeping in touch, but by simply being open. So being open in general is going to be a big part of this goal.

Also, I don’t want to be driven by my preferences. I enjoy talking to or feeling close to some people more than others but I want to be open and build relationships with anyone who is in my life.

Edit: 43T doesn’t seem to want me to rename the goal, keeps reverting to the old one. 1 year ago

ZaldaniaNow more than ever...

Now more than ever is this goal important to me… 2 years ago

NualaBualaI'm making

an extra effort to go to any Christmas meetups that are arranged this year. I’m really looking forward to seeing friends I haven’t met with in a while.

I also have a few things arranged with some groups I belong to – they are not as important but I know I’d regret letting another year slide by without making more effort. 3 years ago
