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.

First Semester!

I just completed my first week of nursing school and I already love it. It’s a bit overwhelming but I am so glad to be there. I honestly thought this day would never come and am happy I decided to stick with it :)


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


I went to nursing school to meet with an advisor and discuss my classes. Found out that since I have chosen to work full time and go to school part time, I can’t go there (for now). There are four classes I need to take and none of them are offered at night. So I registered at OTC and will hopefully start classes in the fall. Crossing my fingers that everything works out.


I am going to go to school in fall and am going for my nursing degree. The thought of going back to school and getting my degree is very exciting!

Shelli has gotten 6 cheers on this goal.


I want to:
