Website of the Day: 43 Things

Before I die I want to visit Africa, Iceland and Argentina, go to more museums, master a fantastic karaoke jam, find the perfect jeans, read all the Harry Potter books and become a mother. What do you want to do with your life? If you're a list maker like me check out 43 Things, a site that encourages users to think of 43 things you want to before you die — no matter how insignificant or extreme the goal.

The creators stress that your "43 Things" don't all have to change the world (hello, finding the perfect jeans is only going to make me happy), but the more passionate and honest you are about your hopes and dreams, the better your life will be in the end and the better your list will be.

The site features a whole community element — you can share your progress and find people with the similar goals and interests.

To learn how to post your favorite websites to our Website of the Day group,

I know that this long list looks scary, but trust me, once you get the hang of it, it'll be a snap the second time around.

I have been a 43things user for about two years. I LOVE that site. I love the community there, the friends, the vibes, the motivation. It is a great, great place. GOOD CHOICE.

Why is it called 43 Things? Everything needs a name. We think 43 is the right number of things for a busy person to try and do. Why not more? It’s too much. Why not less? You can do less, but it is still called 43 Things.

i really like the idea behind this but I can't sign up for yet another thing I won't actually go back to - it is too draining! I have quite a huge list of things I want to do and change etc that I look at and update frequently, on my computer.

Just wanted to say that I think this is one of the best SoTD yet! I've been using 43 Things for *thinks*, probably about 3 years, and it's really encouraging to go back and click "Done" on things, as well as inspiring to get up and do the next thing. Also, it's counterparts, 43 People and 43 Places are a blast to use as well.

That's really motivating! I like that idea. I wonder why they settled on the number 43 in particular.

oh wow surprised this hasn't been a wotd yet. this site is absolutely amazing. you can use it blog-style to add entries to your goals. it's awesome because there is so much motivation there. it really shows that you can learn a lot from others. it also helps you to not lose sight of long term goals. and it's awesome to see other people completing similar wishes and goals, too. As well, there is - which allows you to put places you'd like to see; so you dont have to add them to your 43things list.
