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.

Find a mentor who will inspire me
My friend N___.

I met this guy on Craigslist who was going to become my friend, and have a very beneficial influence on me. So we started hanging out, and very soon made crazy plans: let’s learn to do this, let’s visit this place, let’s create a film festival…
I learnt a lot from him, about the city and about life; how to make it in life. I feel I’ve become much more self-confident and driven. And he has enriched my American culture, too.
Now we’re not as friends as we used to be but I still respect him, and I am grateful for he contributed to my personality & knowledge.

Graduate from my MBA with honors
I graduated from SFSU MBA with honors.

One of my first memories in the San Francisco State University MBA was the welcome conference. A panel of alumni had come to talk about their experiences. I remember one girl, in particular, who said she graduated with honors. She was pretty and spoke in a soft, assured voice. I knew at this moment that I had to graduate with honors myself.
Of course I had to work a lot, and I ended up doing other people’s work at time, but it paid off.
I graduated with a 3.86 GPA and I’m now a member of the Beta Gamma Sigma honor society. I found a job right when I graduated.

Spend my life with him

And by “him” I mean K__.
I can only hope this goal stays on my list for long long years.
and I’ll reach it when I’m 74!
My whole life with you.
