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.

be the best I can be: work and study harder, and all of that shenanigan. “I do not pray for a lighter load, but for a stronger back.” (read all 7 entries…)

I’ve started back at uni this week, after my 4 month lazy summer! :P
It’s going to be a busy one, i’m taking great subjects that i enjoy but that means I’m going to want to do well in them.

Then of course there’s the whole balancing uni, friends, bf, stress, travelling time, orchestra, family, maintaining my italian even thought i’m not studying it this year, choir, plus everything else random that comes up. Oooh and I’m looking for a new job a few days a week.
I’m still at a quandry – at the moment I travel an hour and a half to get to uni in the city and readily getting sick of it, but if i moved to live in glebe or newtown i’m sure i’d never get any work done… maybe next year i’ll come to a decision.

Stronger back… OK, I can do this!


Shazamela is rethinking her New Year's resolutions.

I remember...

my university days, and trying to maintain a balance in my life was definitely the hardest challenge of all. In some ways it’s pretty impossible to have a balance, bit it is important to at least try.

Some of my closest friends from that time are still, almost 20 years later, among my best friends. Good luck!
