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.

LillaBrunSummer goal

I have some books in my bookshelf that I havn’t read yet. In the end of August there will be school again and then I won’t have time for reading fiction, so I have a goal: read the books in my bookshelf before September. There arn’t that many of them so I’m sure it’s not impossible, it’s just that… there is a reason I havn’t read them yet, I have a unfortunate idea of them being boring. But I have sort of made up a threat for myself – I am not allowing me to buy any new books until I have read these..! 5 years ago


I have a habit of buying books, usually second hand, that appeal to me. But I buy more than I can read! I want to stop buying books and just read all the ones I have in my shelf that I haven’t read yet. Currently that’s about 45 books. 5 years ago

acayaRead All The Books In My Bookshelf

I want to read all the books in my bookshelf because three years in high school have made my spirit unable to breathe the fresh air. To enter a good university, actually, I really don’t have enough time to read all the books I want to read. Therefore, when I finish my Entrance Exam at July third, I’ll read all the books during my almost three-mouth summer vacation.

I love to read. Reading can help me not only learn more but set my thought free.
I feel myself just like a drought pond and it is very empty now.
