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.

Beat my depression (read all 86 entries…)
It's exam season again

So I’m back to exams in the next few months and I’m under more pressure than ever to get it right. I picked two of my university offers to reply to and have put myself in for those courses.

I'm told by my parents etc that employers and similiar people don't tend to make much of a fuss where you got your degree unless it's from like Cambridge or Oxford but I still desperately want to get into the higher up of my two options so it will be something I can be proud of. Also my preferred university has exchange projects across the world so I could study in Singapore, Ohio, or a number of other places that my other university doesn't offer.

I’m really trying to revise but it’s so difficult to concentrate sometimes and there’s always this doubt I have about getting into the course I want which is incredibly off-putting. It’s now when I realise more than ever, that I needed to go into private education, at least for the last couple of years.

I’ve got my last shot at an assessed practical in chemistry tomorrow, and I HAVE to get it right this time. I can’t afford to screw up and get a B or C again, I need these early marks.


May I ask what else than chem you have taken? I took chem at AS, and I found it so hard! So I dropped that and carried on with French, English Language and Biology at A2

I know how you feel though, I am in the process of UCAS too and the pressure for me is on as I don’t have an insurance, and I am so worried I won’t get in! It’s all I think about. Yet despite this I have no motivation to revise. I get my books out but can’t last more than 2 or 3 minutes before giving up.

Good luck for tomorrow!

zeroid trying my best

What is your ultimate goal? What do you want to study in college?????

flankdubtechnojazz is determined to do better this year

I’m gonna study civil engineering. It’s a career path that gives practical, tangible results that last and it could take me across the world. I just want to travel and gain experiences from around the world as well as to make a difference (or try to).

Gho-s-t Noone lights a candle under the table , make your powers be known.

Go buy a homeless man a meal.

Practical tangible results dont have to involve civil engineering. Great experiences doesnt mean you have to travel the world.

Im not trying to dissuade you friend,far from it, just suggesting you start small and see what else is happening in your backyard. I guarantee youre missing out on something. Alot actually ;)
