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.

Time to get it done again 5 years ago

SilvieAt last!!

The piano tuner has just gone…my lesson is in 30 minutes on my newly tuned up piano!!! 6 years ago


The guy arrived when he said he would and he tuned the piano just great, it is now sounding beautiful. And he’s put us down in his annual book meaning that this time next year I won’t have to go through the same rigmarole trying to track him down to come do it again :D 6 years ago

TazHe's coming

on Monday. :D 6 years ago


got hold of him today. He’s going to ring me and come over next week to tune the piano :D Next week!!! Woohoo. 6 years ago

TazPhoned him again today

but got his anwerphone again :( Another message left. 6 years ago

TazLeft a message

for him. Fingers crossed this time I’ll get a response. 6 years ago

TazWell big one's

Grade 2 piano exam came and went. She passed :D and still the piano is untuned. This goal is now a priority come January. I am determined that my little musical star will have a piano that sounds good. 6 years ago

TazNearly there.

Phoned the guy today and he’s going to phone me back within then next couple of months as soon as he has a free appointment. Hooray! And it’s not as expensive as I thought it was going to be…well not yet anyway. 6 years ago

TazSecond attempt

I never heard anything back from my first attempt and big one’s piano teacher has finally given her the number for her own tuner. I’ve just tried ringing him but he’s not available just now so I’ll be sure to try again. We may just have some progress :D 6 years ago

TazFinally got round to phoning the piano tuner

and guess what? He doesn’t come out as far as our village. :( But he knows someone who does, so he’s going to phone them and ask them to ring me this coming week. :D 7 years ago

TazI have a phone number

While we were in the music shop today I asked them if they could recommend a piano tuner and voila one phone number and a name. Now I have to use it. 7 years ago

TazI am such a bad piano owner.

We bought the piano oooh 2 years ago I think. Big one was starting piano classes and well you need something to practise on. We viewed the piano, we moved it from their house to our house in the back of a horsebox and not once has the poor piano been tuned since coming here. :o
Big one plays some lovely music on it but you can hear some of the notes really aren’t as good as they should be. 7 years ago


Wow, a world of difference, it’s sounds so much nicer now. 7 years ago

hautepinkout of key

Honestly. Its beginning to sound like a harp. If I sit on it, I can almost here the faint remnants of a C sharp. Not that tuning it will get me anywhere near my goal of outdoing Yann Tiersen.
A casio is not a substitute. 8 years ago
