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.

live instead of merely existing

My life is an extremly boring movie, with no plot, next to no charactors and very little action in between the beginning and the credits, i want an exciting movie

write a novel
I will actually achieve something and write a novel

So my life basically consists of writing, sleeping and smoking,
I have a part time job of course, and i feel so free and creative while writing, I can create a world out of nothing.
So my days are spent at work for 5 hours in the evening, and staying up until 4 or 5 in the morning (every night) writing.
This better take me somewhere.

get a job
Bout time I get a feakin job

Im 16 and left school a year ago, i did a course and worked for a while, lots of money, met great people but other things were getting in the way, and I quit.
This was a month ago and it hasnt been that easy to find another job, well i have a part time job but that aint enough to get my dad off my back who gives me shit every day and it really hurts my feelings.
AND then ill have the money to put into achieving my other goals.
