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.

I moved so it was easy to just sort out what was excess and give em away. 6 years ago


congrats on this! I have four bags that are waiting for me to find their matching pair. 8 years ago


It sure feels good to check this goal off of my list. The sort is finally done and I have a whole bag of socks that are holy, matchless, faded or otherwise have to go! All remaining socks, panty hose and tights are matched up and neatly stored. Mission accomplished! :-) 8 years ago

ButterflyKateThis Is Even Scarier Than I Thought!

I dumped all three drawers of socks onto my bed and started the sort. I got about 1/4 way done before I got totally bored with the whole idea. Since the socks are still on my bed, I won’t be able to sleep in it till the sort is done. Hopefully this will provide the motivation I need! :-) 8 years ago

ButterflyKateThis One Could Be Scary!

I have a rubber maid bin with three drawers full of socks. Almost none of them are matched up and it’s time to get them organized. The socks that have lost their matches need to go! 8 years ago
