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.

I quit last year!

After high school I went to college to become a teacher. (that education takes 4 years here in the Netherlands. After that you are fully able to teach 5 to 12 year olds)
I decided after two years that is was not what I really wanted. I had been struggling in those two years. Not because it was to hard, but because I couldn’t fully commit!
Now I am lost and not really doing anything. Well.. I have my job which I really like! (working as a cashier in a super market) Mostly because of my colleagues though. And I am getting more and more responsibilities at my job. I don’t want to do this the rest of my life though…
I want to figure out who I am and what I want.
