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.

turned in application...

i’ve been contemplating and planning for this day and finally i’m sending off my application to one of the top schools in california. as a precaution, i’m starting to look into other schools that i may possibly apply in the future. right now i feel a tremendous amount of weight lifted off my shoulders. i didn’t think it was this difficult to send off an application… uncertainty really held me back. either way, it’s done for now and i get to move on with doing other things in my life… like SLEEP!!!


just a couple of days left until the deadline. i’m finally wrapping up this statement. after this i know i’ll feel very relieved.


I really need to tap into my brain and work on this statement. I realize that in the end, this will be for me, but for now I think of it as for my grandfather. It makes it easier for me to sit down and concentrate and to work harder when I’m doing this for my grandpa. He will be proud of me when I tell him that I’ll be going back to school again.


I have to admit that writing was never my forte and it has become more paralyzingly difficult over the years since I’ve been out of college. Now I face this demon all over again while trying to finish this statement for graduate school. The next couple of weeks will be very difficult and torturous as I write this simple 600 word statement about myself and my experience and qualifications to become an Occupational Therapist. As I told myself through college, “This will get done and be over with”. This is a simple obstacle that I have to overcome for a beautiful and exciting future ahead of me.


winter break goal:

my goal during these 3 weeks off is to write a rough draft of why i want to become an occupational therapist… it’s the best time to do it!!


one of the several things that’s delaying my application process to a graduate school is the statement. i used to love to write, but now it’s become a struggle. i have to overcome this and JUST WRITE a little, piece by piece, on why i want to become an occupational therapist. i’m a quick learner and a hard worker, but i can’t prove to them otherwise without it in writing.
