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.

Teach others how to achieve their dreams
I just want you to GET IT...

One of the things that keeps coming to mind for me is my ability to help other people. I see so many people struggling to make their dreams come true, and I can see that they are sincere. It is my intention to find ways to help others see that they CAN make all their dreams come true. I want to do this through my writing, my art, my counseling, and through public speaking. I feel like everything in my life has led me to be able to do this.

Apply to the Master of Arts in Transformative Arts program at JFKU
Applied & Was Accepted!

I’ve started a new job at a retirement community~~ I’m not sure how this impacts this goal, but there’s loads of potential for cross-over!

Creativity, inspiring others to self-expression, and community-building have been a few of the most appealing elements of the MA program in Transformative Arts. It’s possible that I can achieve those goals where I’m at & bypass the tuition & time it takes to complete a masters degree…

Still on my list, but I’m willing to compromise a bit…

follow my bliss
I have to do this...

This is what all my other things are about. I just want to follow my bliss and take as many people on that journey with me as I can. I want my bliss to inspire other people to follow theirs. I can’t even describe what I see when I contemplate this one…
