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.

joie de vivreMochi making opportunity

On Bainbridge Island

I think we’re going! 4 years ago

fuzzyducklingI am making it on Thursday of this week!

My friend Jessica and I are going to make mochi in 2 days. I’m really excited about it. She made it recently at the Waldorf school she used to work at. We are going to go to Uwajimaya and buy the necessary ingredients and then make it at my house. Yay! 5 years ago


cherry & apple filled mochi …done 6 years ago

dnoorFloury mess!

It’s not hard to do, but it seems like it would take a couple of tries to do it right. I made mochi filled with green tea ice cream. The ice cream turned out great- but the the mochi was a sticky, gooey, mess. For some reason I couldn’t get the dough consistency right. It was too thick, and not as chewy- I think I added too much flour. I think I also dusted too much flour on top. They say to use food coloring to dye the mochi on the recipe I used, but I used the green tea powder (Matcha) I used to make the ice cream. A quick trip to Trader Joe’s is probably easier, but it was worth trying it out. 7 years ago

joie de vivreNew Year's Day

I did it on the morning of New Year’s Day, when I lived at the Sansui building in Kobe.

I love mochi—that doughy texture is right up my alley. But for the life of me, I don’t know why it’s so expensive. It’s just blobby rice, with some flavors or fillings. 8 years ago


This is not as easy as we thought it would be. While tasty, these chocolate turds left a little to be desired aesthetically. We’ll have to try this again. 8 years ago
