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.

paztalk talk talk

talk about things that matter, that don’t matter, say things you want to say, don’t want to say, have already said, that other people say… say something to someone so they know you’re there! that’s what i’ve been trying to do…. 7 years ago


I start to think that if I continue this way I will have to die all alone.
have to learn to talk with people I don’t know, because that is the way to know them – isn’t it??
today still feel to shy to do this, but step by step..
for now at least one target – say more then just Hello to all people I know already.
Something more scary – next week :) 8 years ago

I hereby promise to speak to 10 or more new people each week in the next 2 years. The conversations must last more than 60 seconds, and for each person I miss I will donate 10 dollars to charity. 8 years ago


I think it’s a little hard for me to achieve this goal, I want to stop being a calm person, I like to be that kind of people who always find something nice to talk about. 8 years ago
