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.

Feels good to have found myself again!

I took time out to meditate, do the things i love to do, relax and focus on my goals and voila i found myself again. When i get too busy to think that’s when i get lost n i just start doing things that have nothing to do with who i am or where i wana go. so i’m back on track, i m sure i’ll have to re-open this goal but hopefully not for a while. I think my new bf helps me with this one.

Spiritual development

Another major focus of my life is spiritual development and I’ve found I favour eastern techniques such as meditation and yoga. I also want to be a vegetarian and live a life in line with my spiritual purpose. These are areas of my life i have been neglecting and this may be why I’m feeling lost.


Another thing I love is soccer. I’ve played for 9 years ad I look forward to playing and training so much. It is a source of so much not just fitness, but skill, concentration, flexibility, coordination, fast-thinking, decision making, team-work, positive thinking, encouragement, how to give and take criticism, friendship, celebration, fun, winning, losing, self-confidence, self-respect, power, energy, strength. I love soccer.
Being active and health conscious is defineately a big part of who I am, it is something I value and am proud of in myself.


Another thing I value a lot is knowledge. I love to be constantly learning. I read a lot of books and am doing a double degree, although i want to be a teacher I have a strong interest in psychology and am doing a degree in that also.
I love having long intellectual discussions about ideas and intangible things. I love words and using big words, learning new words and playing with words. I love satire and metamorphs, I love poetry and passionate raw literature. This is a big part of who I am.


Another part of me is my desire to be a teacher. This is one of my biggest goals, to be able to have my own class of students and assist them in learning the wonders of the world. I know I especially want to teach in my area as I feel passionate about helping my immediate community. This is a big driving force in my life and I need to focus on finishing my teaching degree.

I love music, I want music, I need music.

One thing that is a massive part of me n my life is music.
Playing, listening to and discovering new music defineately links into where i want to be, who i am n what i value.
People who appreciate music as much as myself share a secret with me, I want to surround myself with more musically inclined people.

I lose myself on a regular basis.

I get caught up in the hustle and bustle material world, i forget what i really want and end up chasing something off my path.
I think i’m lost again, i don’t know what I want and therefore don’t know who i want to be and thus don’t know who i am, where i am or where i’m headed.
This goal will end up painting a picture of who i am, what my values and goals are n serve as a constant reminder to stay on my path.
