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.

ClickchicVery productive day

Today has been such a good, confidence boosting day. Having felt quite miserable the last few days, as I type this I feel so much better, much stronger. Went to a counselling session this morning, and that went extremely well, I started it crying and ended it smiling!

After this, saw my tutor about my coursework, and deadlines, feeling fired up and ready to work hard over the next two weeks. Lots to do! Only concern is having the home to prepare for the second inspection too – but the lads will help me with that.

I’m feeling nicely tired, off to bed ready for another productive day tomorrow – and at some point entering on here the key points I learnt today, from the counsellor, to help feel so much better and be able to defeat the negative thoughts that lead to depression. 8 years ago


Yesterday I worked hard at college, and went in today for a short time, but neither was very productive. The developing didn’t seem to go well yesterday, and today I processed a 36 frame film, and it hadn’t worked at all! All those photos disappeared. Can’t think where I went wrong, I sat there going over the steps and I’m sure they were all done accurately. The only thing I can think of is that maybe the film wasn’t winding on, although the digital display showed the numbers as going up as each photo was taken.

I am having a rest tomorrow, will work on my workbook, and then go in early Monday to do more. What I do feel is that although the last two days were not actually very ‘productive’, the actual work was put in – which is a great improvement on sleeping too much, or when I procrastinate all day! 8 years ago

ClickchicWorked hard again

Another good, productive day. Left the house at 8.15, walked to the station, got to Uni by half nine – and stayed until half six! Saw my tutor, thought I might be too late for the exhibition coming up, but to my relief she said it isnt too late. As I did my first year at a different Uni, and have been unwell, I’m on a steep learning curve and my work might not be quite good enough. But I fully accept this, I was more concerned that I would not even be able try, through being unwell and disorganised. If it isn’t up to disply standard – the exhibition is open to the public – I’m fine with that, importantly at least I would have tried.

Worked in the developing room all day! Apart from lunchtime, when I strolled into the city centre, there was a pleasant, relaxed atmosphere with people sitting, enjoying the sunshine. By the end of the day I had printed off contact sheets, and a number of full size prints – am very pleased with how they are looking. Still find it exciting to develop and print my own photos, it’s a wonderful feeling to look at a photo and know you’ve produced it totally yourself, from scratch. More hard work in the developing room tomorrow… 8 years ago


Very pleased with work I did today, for Uni. Worked in the darkroom, worked in the library, then worked at home! So a good productive day, for Uni work. 8 years ago


Why do I spend time wastefully rather than working to make true, make a reality, the life I want? Why do I let past hurts hold me back, allow frustrations to meddle with my mind and stop me being the energetic hard working focused me I want to be? 8 years ago
