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.

Shelli is trying to figure out what she wants to do

I have decided to change my major and am now going to into special education. To all going into nursing, good luck!!!!


Hi, why did you change your major? I’m in a nursing program but I’ve doubts as to whether nursing’s for me, so I would like to hear why you changed your major.

Honestly I couldn’t afford the tuition. I switched schools and was told there was no way in hell I would be admitted to their program. I have a son that is a special needs child and it is something that I am familiar with. If you have doubts about nursing, you really need to figure out what’s causing it. You don’t want to get halfway through the program and find out it’s not what you want to do. Good luck!


I want to:
