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.

catchlightning Trying to find a stable job and enjoy my semester off before the MA!

keep in better touch with friends & family (read all 2 entries…)

Struggling with this very much. I left high school early and went to a jc. Now it send that had left me permanently out of the loop. I tried joining facebook, reconnecting, and even messaging people. I was added, accepted by some whatever you call it, but I noticed I am completely out of the circle I was once in. I comment, follow up with them, but never get replies or tangible conversation. I understand we are in college but I wonder if it is normal to be the only one putting out effort? They have changed so much too, mostly interested in drinking and pop culture. It so far feels very unrewarding and is very depressing. I have some other friends but one is dying and the others are just as busy as I am, making funding time together difficult. Family, I am doing better with in this regard but I.dont know… I am wondering if I should give them a year after they graduate to settle down or find time? Very strange to feel so isolated.



I want to:
