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.

My own perfect island where I can create my own piece of fantasy ;) 3 years ago

Lakshboywhat will I do?

after owning Island somewhere in a beautiful place, the things I will do are:
1. construct a circuit to drive.
2. build a small harbor.
3. build a 7 star hotel at one corner.
4. build my own house at the very top.
5. build a heliport.
6. construct a running track.
7. set up a high-tech gym.
8. plant most exotic trees and flowers.
9. construct a private swimming pool by fencing the sea.
10. and much more…........... 6 years ago


I want to buy an island preferably off the coast of a nonviolent country. Sign a nonaggression pact with the ruler and become my own country. It will be called Hastonia. I have gone as far as to find out the cost and even talk with an island real estate agent. But alas i am entirely to poor for this right now. 7 years ago

LitaMCRreally good idea

I want to get one too
This maybe one of the best thing human have in the world
just have their own island.

If I’ve got one, I’ll build my house on it maybe on a tree
and I’ll have many pets as my friends. I’ll plant vegetable and fruit on my island and sell it to buy any meat and eggs so those are my food.I’ll allow just someone I like to my island my friend, my family. I’ll go to skool by umm.. by ship lol or just a little boat. When I grow up I will marry at my island and stay there with my family. 7 years ago


i want to own my own island with helper monkeys that do my bidding…i will only allow people i like and hot guys to step foot on my island 8 years ago


don’t know if i’ll get my own island
but my friend said she is going to buy a bar somewhere in the south pacific and that i can be her cabana boy so it’s close i think 8 years ago

MovicWouldn't this be cool!?

So…imagine a trpoical paradise. A PRIVATE tropical paradise. Somewhere for you to go and just relax. You could go alone, or bring friends. You could swim in the clear blue water, snorkel/scuba dive with the native fish, lay on the beach and work on your tan, or go explore parts of the island you haven’t been to before. Somplace where there are no ringing phones, or responsibilities. Just a place to get away. It may not be the kind of thing that appeals to everyone, but it sure does appeal to me. That’s why I’d like to own my own island. 8 years ago
